Sally Gunnell

Sally Gunnell has made a easy transition to life in front of the camera after a highly sucessful career on the track.

Gunnell is the only woman to have held the European, World, Commonwealth and Olympic 400 metre hurdles title at the same time.

Sally won two Commonwealth golds and a silver in 1990 - she also won gold for the hurdles in 1994.

Her greatest victory came at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona when as captain of the British women's team, winning a gold medal for the hurdles and a bronze for the relay.

Sally feels that home advantage could lead to a huge medal haul at the Games.

She is tipping the likes of Mark Lewis-Francis, Julie Holman, Catherine Murphy and Chris Tomlinson to shine in Manchester.
