BBC Sport - Greg Rutherford responds to critics of his British record
Rutherford defends new British mark
- From the section Athletics
Olympic gold medallist Greg Rutherford has dismissed criticism of his new British long jump record, which he set in San Diego last month.
Rival Chris Tomlinson questioned the validity of the 8.51m jump, which has been declared legal, and the status of the meeting at which it was set, but Rutherford says: "If other people have problems with my competitions then there's nothing I can do. All I can do is turn up and compete."
Rutherford also speaks about his desire to possibly compete in the skeleton event at the Winter Olympics and about becoming a father later this year.
