Elliot GILES - Great Britain - Bronze medal in men's 800m at 2016 European Championships.

In January 2012 Elliot had a serious motorcycle accident which prevented him from competing for over

three years. In 2016 he won the UK Championships, which gave him a place at the Europeans where

his bronze medal qualified him for the 2016 Olympics.  He is pictured above in his semi final

(following Marcin Lewandowski) and in which he also finished third.
