Doddington sprinter Jonnie Peacock has admitted 2014 has not gone how he’d hoped but he is determined to get back to his best next year.
The 21 year old battled back from a back injury to clinch gold at the European Championships but he was twice beaten by his American rival Richard Browne at the Anniversary Games and the Glasgow Grand Prix.
In an interview with BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, he said: “It was a lesson. Coming back from my back injury was a struggle.
“I lost a few races which was difficult for me. It was a shock, but it brings you back down to earth.
“It forces you to look at yourself under a magnifying glass and say things aren’t good enough.
“You learn so many lessons from losses and not so many from wins, but I’m happy that I was able to hold off to win the European Championships.”
