STRATFORD'S Andrew Pozzi has revealed his frustrations after failing to finish the 110m hurdles at the Athletics World Cup at the London Stadium on Saturday.

The 26-year-old was representing GB in the eight-nation event and was desperate to impress the home crowd and build on his preparation for the European Championships in August.

Pozzi made a solid start, but clattered into the third hurdle and then fell at the fourthas he watched Pascal Martinot-Lagarde claim gold for France in 13.22 seconds.

"The World Cup was a fantastic stage that frustratingly I didn't get to enjoy fully as a competitor," said the Stratford AC man.

"I collided with South Africa's Antonio Alkana in lane one, with our arms tangling causing me to hit hurdle three hard and ending my race.

"It was a big blow as we approach the European Championships, but I have one race left at the Muller Anniversary Games to find my rhythm before heading to Berlin."
