Rooney reflects on GB relay bronze
- From the section Athletics
Relay runner Martyn Rooney tells BBC London it "took a lot of sacrifices" to help Great Britain's men win a bronze medal in the 4x400m at the World Championships in Beijing.
The 28-year-old, who captained the British team in China, missed the birth of his first child, Jack, to compete in the championships.
Rooney ran the anchor leg as Great Britain took third from Jamaica by four thousandths of a second.
Meanwhile the Croydon-born athlete believes Lord Coe is the "right person" to lead the IAAF and deal with the doping allegations which have hit the sport.
