Former athletics legend, Colin Jackson CBE, was recently appointed InerHigh’s school ambassador. We spoke to the former 110m hurdles double world champion and record holder about his new appointment and what he hopes to bring to the role.
What prompted you to accept the offer to become InterHigh’s school ambassador and get involved?
“The first thing you’ve got to do is make sure you have a real genuine fit to any challenge or any task or any thing you take on. This is one of the things I’m quite adamant in. Anybody who has represented me will truly know that I will not get involved in anything that I don’t believe in. That’s the first thing. Added to that, I don’t lend my name to things, I have to be part of things. So, for me it’s really important that yes, you’re an ambassador in that sense, but you’ve got to feel like you’re on the ground and that you can be part of it. For me I want people to really use my resources and really pull on my lifetime experiences and what I do and not just be a mouthpiece.”
