While the dust settles on another exhilarating World Championships, all eyes are on Rio as preparations for the 2016 Olympics are underway.
We were lucky enough to catch up with some of Nike's Young Guns recently; the next generation who will hopefully be wowing us in Rio.
Equipped with Nike Flash Pack gear, Kyle Langford, David Omoregie, Shona Richards and Yasmin Miller were happy to give us the lowdown on what keeps them motivated through the cold, winter months.
Having only run for four years, Kyle has gone from training three times a week to a full-time athlete and European U20 champ. Growing up on the same estate as Olympic champion boxer Anthony Joshua drives him to keep achieving.
At the Anniversary Games this year Kyle lined up against the World Record holder, Olympic champion, and World Leader, yet his second lap was the fastest in the field – which only shows how exciting the future is for Kyle

Juggling university life with her training for the 100m hurdles, Yasmin has recently started coaching herself to cope with the pain while training for longer sprints. After a set-back year, Yasmin watched the Anniversary Games from the seats, though she hasn’t let that hold her back.
Commenting on her year ahead, Yasmin said:
“A set-back year has been good for me, it has made me realise nothing is a given – you can’t slack. It has given me even more focus for 2016 and what I want to achieve.”

Originally from Cardiff, David has moved to train and study in Loughborough. Following his transition in 2015, the move has proved successful with him winning the U23 European Champs in the 110m hurdles.
David, alongside his siblings, has always been athletic with great talent in multiple sports. Currently living in student halls, he is surrounded by fellow athletes who share the same dream and focus as him.

Shona Richards seeks motivation from her father, who has supported her throughout her athletic career and pushed her in training and competing to achieve her very best.
Combining student life with her training, Shona lives and breathes athletics, with her thoughts always coming back to the track. As the fastest British 19-year-old female in her discipline, Shona is looking forward to having an exciting and positive year ahead.
