Tim Benjamin parts with Colin Jackson

19 July 2007

In what he described as a decision to get his preparation for the next year’s Olympic Games back on track, British quarter-miler Tim Benjamin has parted with trainer Colin Jackson.

According to the UK Athletics website, Benjamin has decided to leave Jackson’s training group immediate effect to concentrate on his long term developments.

“After much consideration I have taken the difficult decision to leave Colin Jackson’s training group in Cardiff,” the 400m runner was quoted as saying on UK Athletics.

“I believe this is the right decision for me with Beijing just around the corner and the Olympics in London five years away.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank Colin for all he has done for me.”

Meanwhile, despite the announcement made available by Benjamin, Jackson, a former 110m World record holder and a double world champion, said he fully respect the decision made by his fellow countryman, citing that he was also proud of the work put in by Benjamin.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Tim and his decision has my full support,” said Jackson.

“I wish him every success and believe he has the talent and ability to achieve at the highest level.

“I am proud of my work with Tim and look forward to contributing to the development of British athletes.”
