FOND FAREWELL FOR JUMPER TOMLINSON

BRITISH long jumping great Chris Tomlinson brought the curtain down on a 16-year international career in Birmingham at the British championships on Sunday.

Tomlinson, a world indoor silver medallist and outdoor European bronze medallist, finished fifth with a best effort of 7.43m at the Alexander Stadium – well short of the consistent eight-metre form he enjoyed for much of his career.

The triple Olympian, who finished fifth in Athens and sixth in London, reflected on his career and said: “I’ve loved it. It’s been a great road. I always like to keep pushing on but ultimately the distances that I’m jumping now aren’t cutting the mustard. I’m almost a metre down on where I’d like to have been. It looks as though the inevitable is facing me.”
