FORMER Alcester Grammar School student Andrew Pozzi returned from World Indoor Championships in Poland with his confidence boosted.

The 21-year-old has returned to action after recovering from a serious knee injury in good form.

He set his three fastest times of the year competing in the 60 metres hurdles and set a new personal best in the final, where he was pipped into fourth place and missed out on a medal.

He raced into the semi-finals in a personal best equalling time of 7.56s and was joint fastest along with those of the French athletes Pascal Martinot-Lagarde and Garfield Darien.

But he set an even faster time in the final, crossing the line in 7.53s.

He said: “I’ve ran my three fastest times this season here, with a personal in the final and you can’t ask for more than that. I keep on improving and I’m happy with this indoor season.

“It’s difficult to take finishing fourth, I was really looking for a medal.

"I felt competent and capable of doing that, but the medals were decided in incredibly fast times and I think it’s one of the fastest World Indoor finals ever.”
