    This isnt for me, this is for my son. He watched the London Olympics last year (didnt we all) and he watched the hurdling. He now wants to be an Olympic hurdler in the 110m (he is 5 lol)

    What age should we start him “training” and what is the best way to go about it?

    I think he is too young to join an athletics club at 5! But wow, well done you on wanting to encourage this. Have you thought about making some hurdles in the garden (if you have one?) maybe some chairs with a broom across or something? Get him active, get him running, scootering to school or even walking instead of driving him to school (sorry if you do this already, i’m terrible for this and have started not to)
