With eleven gold medals from major championships to his name, Linford Christie is Britain's greatest ever athlete. It was not until he was nearly 26 that he made his unexpected breakthrough to world class with victory over 200 metres at the 1986 European Indoor Championships in Madrid. Since then Linford has been at the forefront of world sprinting. In February 1995, just a few weeks short of his 35th birthday, he set the first individual world record of his career when he ran the 200 metres in 20.25 seconds indoors at Lieven, France.
