Turner aims to overcome setback

Nottinghamshire athlete Andy Turner says he is capable of achieving more, despite having had his lottery funding cut by UK Athletics last year.

The 28-year-old won the 110m hurdles at the European Team Championships in Portugal last week.

He said: "To be where I am now is a dream come true but I'll never be satisfied until I'm in a world or Olympic final and in the mix.

"Until then I'm going to keep giving it everything I've got."

The Hucknall hurdler believes UK Athletics are wrong to think he cannot succeed at the highest level.

He added: "I ran 13.2 here in a not very fast race and that would have made the final in Beijing. Say no more."
