2012 Olympic Semi-Finalist
Ross began running as a child at school. He ran his first race (egg and spoon races in sports day aside) when he was 8. Aged 10 he joined his local running club Wallsend Harriers. At 13 he decided to give up football and concentrate solely on athletics, moving to Gateshead Harriers in order to compete in better races.
2007 saw victories at the English Schools Cross Country and 1500m title and by the end of the year saw Ross gain his first GB vest at the European Junior Cross Country Championships. Further junior level championships followed finishing 6th at the European Junior Track Championships in the 1500m.
2010 saw the beginning of a couple of injury plagued years including a stress fracture in the femur and achillies tendonitis. But in early 2012 Ross was able to start some consistent training allowing him to achieve the Olympic A standard and a strong position of qualifying for the Olympics.
At the 2012 Olympic Games Ross qualified through his heat as 4th fastest and earnt a well-deserved place in the Semi Final, a fantastic achievement after two years of injuries.
Ross’ goals moving forward are to keep developing as an athlete and to win medals at major championships – and to keep enjoying it as much as he has been.
When Ross isn’t training he is a self-confessed film buff, he enjoys eating out, going to coffee shops and when the time is right, enjoys a night out with the boys!
