Olympic athlete, commentator and Strictly dancer Colin Jackson is hurdling his way over to MN Towers on Wednesday (23 May) to join us for a webchat at noon.

Representing Great Britain and Wales, he won an Olympic silver medal, became world champion three times, went undefeated at the European Championships for 12 years and was a two-time Commonwealth champion. His world record of 12.91sec for the 110m hurdles stood for over a decade, and he is also the 60m hurdles world record holder.

Colin will be commentating on the Olympics for the BBC this summer.

Join him next Wednesday at midday or post a question in advance on this thread.

Colin is working with Mission Foods to highlight the range of sporting options for kids, from traditional sports to more marginalised sports, and to show that giving kids a chance to find a sport they like and enjoy is key to getting children to be more active.

Colin noticed me! <swoons>

Very much looking forward to seeing how he does on Dancing on Ice.

On a sporting/fitness front though - we still want a webchat with Jillian Michaels. Come on MNHQ. Tell her that most of her UK DVD sales are MN-related, and if she doesn't come talk to us we'll all defect to Davina we totally won't.
