The Harlow 400m runner is gearing up for London 2012
Andrew Osagie knows that the home support counts for nothing if he fails to perform at the London 2012 Olympics.
The Harlow runner will be taking part in the 400 metres at the Games and is excited by the prospect of the biggest show on Earth.
“It doesn’t matter how much I’ve got the home support, on 6th of August I need to perform, 7th of August I need to perform, and hopefully 9th of August I need to perform.
“At the moment, I’m just doing all the training I can, keeping my nutrition up to date, so I can be in the best shape when it comes to those races,” he said.
“It doesn’t get any bigger. You can go to big stadiums and have big crowds, but this is going to be a home crowd - literally 25 minutes from my house where I’ve lived most of my life.
“The pressure is going to be enormous but I can’t wait for that pressure. I’m going to use it and embrace it.”
