British Star Athlete,Perri Shakes-Drayton announces retirement from Athletics!

Perri has been a stellar athlete for close to 20 years,and she says its time to move on.

Sharing a statement and video,Perri says she felt it was time to hang her spikes.

"20 years since I was first introduced to athletics as a little girl, 16 years as a professional athlete. I’ve decided to call it a day and hang up my spikes... Athletics has gave me many opportunities, including travelling the world and meeting many people. It’s been my life for 20 years but I’m ready to move on and look forward to my future ahead. Big thank you to those who have supported me fans,friends, sponsors and family. Coach Chris Zah for believing in me and making dreams of mine realities. I’ve learnt a lot on my journey through the highs and lows, a big reason for the woman I am today. 
P.S enjoy my video, you know I love the camera had a few words to say plus enjoy some of my great moments from on the track. 
See you around guys 
love PSD"
