Robbie Grabarz eyes World championship success

Robbie Grabarz says he is confident of "going under the radar" and achieve success at the World championships

Robbie Grabarz is confident he can go “under the radar” and achieve success at the World championships.

The Olympic bronze medallist high jumper retained his national title at the Sainsbury’s British championships with a best clearance of 2.28m.

Though he was a convincing winner, Grabarz failed at 2.33m and hasn’t yet reached top form this summer.

The 25-year-old admits he is excited by the expectancy sure to be on him in Moscow next month – and believes he is capable of challenging for a medal.

“I had great fun and I’m happy to defend my title,” he said. “I wanted to jump higher and that was probably the lowest I would take today but the main thing was to defend that title.

“I just need to go out in Moscow and do what I can. I’m coming under the radar a little bit but I know what I can do.”

Sainsbury’s British Championships is the second event in the Sainsbury’s Summer Series. For more information on Sainsbury’s support of world class athletics and disability sport go to www.sainsburys-live-well-for-less.co.uk/occasions/anniversary-games/
