I like Richard Kilty.
That simple. He answers questions well in an interview. He has opinions that are his own, and he is proud to wear his country’s vest.

Also, Mike Rodgers hangs with him. And Mike Rodgers, one of our top US sprinters, and world’s calmest guy, is a good judge of character.
Also, the guy is a talent. He will get under ten seconds soon, but I will state, watch this young Briton has he runs some fast 200 meter races, perhaps his best distance.
The 2014 surprise World Indoor Champion, and in 2015, the European Indoor Champion, Richard Kilty is understanding the opportunity that he has and his countrymen have: that, if they focus, and commit to the common goal, that GBR could be a medal contender if not winner in Beijing over the 4×100 meters.
We interviewed Richard KIlty at the Manchester Great City Games presser on Friday, 8 May 2015.
Thanks to Richard Kilty for his forthrightness.
