Christine Ohuruogu: Former world and Olympic 400m champion resigns at 34


Extraordinary Britain’s previous Olympic and world 400m champion Christine Ohuruogu has resigned at 34 years old.

Ohuruogu won 400m gold at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing multi year in the wake of getting to be title holder in Osaka.

She took silver at the London Olympics in 2012 preceding recapturing her reality title in Moscow in 2013.

“Today is the beginning of the British Championships and as I won’t contend I feel it is a decent time to report my retirement,” she said.

“I didn’t feel prepared to resign after last season however a blend of my investigations and niggling damage confined how much preparing I could do this year.”

The east Londoner was allowed a one-year boycott for missing three out-of-rivalry medicate tests in 2006 and her interest in the Beijing Games of 2008 was under risk at one phase from a British Olympic Association local law that implied any doping offenses were deserving of lifetime Olympic bans.

Ohuruogu, who turned into a MBE in the wake of her 2008 Olympic triumph, was the main British lady to win two games world titles.

“I end my vocation with four Olympic awards and five World Championships decorations,” Ohuruogu said.

“Sports has been my obsession for so long and I am glad to call myself a competitor.”
