Chris Rawlinson

Christopher ("Chris") Lee Rawlinson (born: 19 May 1972 in Rotherham, England) is a track and field athlete who competes in the 400 metre hurdles.

He also appeared in the 1995 series of the popular TV series Gladiators.

After trying the pole vault, decathlon and 110 m hurdles in his early career Chris has found the gruelling 400 m hurdles to be his number one event.

A graduate of Loughborough University, Chris holds the world best of 34.48 seconds for the rarely run 300 m hurdles, which he set at Sheffield, England on 30 June 2002.[1]

In July 2004 he ranked third on the United Kingdom all-time list for the 400 m hurdles with a time of 48.14 seconds, set in 1999 at Zurich, Switzerland. In the build-up to the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, Chris was ranked number five in the world by the IAAF.

Rawlinson retired from competitive athletics at the end of 2005 at the age of 33.[2] He married Australian athlete Jana Pittman on 31 March 2006.
