Athletics is one of the most popular sports at the Olympics and with every athlete intending to be at their peak, this makes the competition standards higher and tougher.
Tiffany Porter, a former US athlete, joined the British team in 2010 making her our best 100m hurdler. Previously, Jessica Ennis was our number one who specialises in the Heptathlon meaning she would not compete as a hurdler in the Olympics. However, this weekend at the Aviva World Trials Tiffany Porter beat Ennis making her our sprint hurdles Olympic hopeful.
The last time Great Britain medaled in the 100m Hurdles was in 1960. Porter currently holds the British record and if she continues to improve, we might be seeing our first GB 100m Hurdles medal in 52 years.
