Colin was twice world champion, in 1993 and 1999, and set a new world record as he won his first title in Stuttgart in 1993. He also won a bronze in his first World Championship in 1987 and silver a decade later. He went through his entire career without tasting defeat at the European Championships and is one of only four athletes to have won four successive titles at the event. Added to his list of hurdles victories are two Commonwealth Games (1990 & 1994), a World Indoor hurdles championships and two European Indoor Championships. He also competed as a pure sprinter and was European Indoor 60 m champion in 1994 as well as being an occasional member of the British 4×100 team. As a relay runner he won a silver medal in the 1993 World Championships and competed regularly at the Europa Cup. Jackson’s 1993 world record of 12.91 seconds stood for 13 years until broken by Liu Xiang. He was Europe’s Athlete of the Year in 1994 and was three times voted Wales’ Sports Personality of the Year.
