Robbie Grabarz Euro Trials 2013

09 January 2014

We caught up with Olympic bronze medallist and European champion Robbie Grabarz ahead of his appearance at the Sainsbury’s Glasgow International Match on Saturday 25 January and got him thinking with a round of quick fire questions…

Best thing to happen in 2013?

Buying a new house in Birmingham

Funniest athlete?

Me, because everyone finds me hilarious!

Best performance by an athlete in 2013?

It would have to be Bohdan Bondarenko's clearance of 2.41m to win gold in Moscow

Favourite track and why?

I’ve always liked the NIA indoors in Birmingham – it’s a really different surface. It a hard surface to work out, but once you get it right, you can fly.

Describe yourself in three words?

Tall, dark and handsome

Guilty pleasure?


Most treasured possession and why?

I don’t have anything nice, so probably some nail clippings I had when I was a child!
