When I run for my country, I'm very proud to run for my country.

Some suggestions for you :

It's doesn't just come overnight, you've got to train for it and believe in yourself; that's the most important thing.

I'm especially drawn to the sand dunes. I love driving around and exploring them by dune buggy.

I believe no matter who you are, respect yourself, respect others.

I'm probably a lot more closer in the 1500m to the world record than I am in the 5000m.

I enjoy my athletics, and I want to take it as far as I can.

Obviously, I believe in clean sport and want to do all that I can, but at the same time, you can only control yourself.

There's got to be the same rules for everyone.

Records are there to be broken. Lots of people would love to swap their world record for an Olympic medal, but for me, my medals are there forever and ever, and that's what does it for me.

I want to thank the public, so I have to keep doing what I do, which is keep winning medals for my country.

It's great to be British, really. If anything happens, I'm back to my country. At least I have a country.

Look at my success. I didn't achieve it overnight. It has been the product of many years' struggle, and every year, my times have shown gradual improvement.

I wished for just one medal as a junior.

I'd love to work with children. I've set up the charity, and that's going well. We've got a lot of projects we're doing in Somalia, so I'd like to see how we're doing there.

Come join us; see the reality of what I have to do to achieve what I achieve. There are no cutting corners.
