You don't become the best overnight! We are delighted to get the opportunity to work with Jason Smyth who has come on board as Topaz Brand Ambassador for 2012.
Jason is the reigning T13 100m and 200m Paralympic champion and world record holder, he competes in both Paralympic and able body athletics. He was the first Paralympian to compete at a European Championship in 2010 and has since competed at the 2011 World Championship.
Jason trains with a group of world class sprinters in Florida, five of which have ran 100 metres under 10 seconds this season including the second fastest man in history, Tyson Gay.
We worked closely with Jason to provide an insight into what it takes to compete in the world of high performance elite athletes.
