Zac has finished his season off with a Gold medallion the 4X 100M relay.
After admittedly a bad season for Zac, he has finished it off with his first senior medal at a major championships.
“I ran the heat helping the guys get through to the final, however I wasn’t expecting to be running in the final. I was sat in the stands waiting to watch the race & I got a phone call saying they need me in the call room ASAP. I’ve never ran so fast in my life! I had a very short 10 minute warm up and that was it. all I was thinking was ‘don’t false start, don’t false start’. It was amazing especially to be in top of the podium with the rest of the team (Laura Sugar, Nathan Maguire, Sophie Hahn).”
“I am disappointed with my season overall, however I want to bounce back next season. I’ve learned a lot from this season and I’m going to work hard over the coming 12 months to get back to my best.”
Following the championships Zac parted ways with his coach since 2016 (Joe McDonnell) and has joined Leon Baptiste’s training group.
