King keen to use ‘amazing’ World Indoor Championships experience as motivation

PLYMOUTH athlete David King described competing at the World Indoor Championships as an ‘amazing experience’.

King, representing Great Britain, reached the semi-finals of the men’s 60m hurdles in Birmingham.

He clocked 7.69 seconds in the heats on Saturday evening before running 7.70 in a strong semi-final on Sunday.

It was not enough to reach the final and the City of Plymouth athlete admitted he was a bit disappointed with his semi run.

“I am a little bit disappointed, I can’t lie,” he said afterwards. “I would have liked to have done a bit better and improved on my time from the heats.

“But it has been an amazing experience and I will use it as motivation for the outdoor season.”

King will make his Commonwealth Games debut in April after been selected to represent England in Australia.
