ATHLETICS: Douglas stays upbeat
11:00am Thursday 5th August 2010 in Athletics
Oxford City’s Nathan Douglas remains positive about his future, despite bowing out after three jumps in the triple jump final.
Douglas, who qualified for the final with a leap of 16.80m, failed to repeat the feat in the final, with a best jump of 16.48.
But, having been a major doubt before the championships because of a nagging injury, Douglas said: “Obviously it was disappointing.
“But this shows where I am. Three weeks before the UK trials it looked as if I wasn’t going to have a season, so I did well just to get to Barcelona.”
