Great Britain's Darren Campbell remains one of the world's best performers though he has been overshadowed by the younger sprinters in the recent years. A Sydney silver medallist in the 200m, Campbell was not expected to make the world championship team in 2003 but he proved it wrong by making it and also winning a bronze in the 100m.

The former professional footballer went to Sydney four years ago with his thoughts trained on the 100m. But he finished sixth and surprisingly went on to grab a surprise silver in the 200m.
