Video interview: The trials and tribulations of World and European Indoor 60m Champion Richard Kilty

At the Nike Free Showcase - an exclusive evening exploring Natural Motion and Nike Running - we took the opportunity to chat to Richard about winning Gold at the European Indoor Championship, how he got into athletics and also plans for the year ahead and Rio 2016.

About Richard Kilty

Richard Kilty, the ‘Teesside Tornado’, is a real-life underdog story.  18 months ago Kilty had no funding, couldn’t afford a coach and sometimes couldn’t even spare the money to travel to the track to train.  Now he’s tipped as being the one to watch for Rio 2016 and beyond.
 
Winning his first National title in 2001 while living in a homeless shelter, Richard has overcome adversity again and again. His perseverance and determination in spite of hardship are admirable and aspirational qualities for the younger generation.
 
Richard has his sights set on translating his new found 60m speed to the Blue Riband 100m and competing with the world’s best outdoors by going sub-10 seconds.
