An interview with the sprint hurdling sisters after their one-two at the British Championships
Tiffany Porter and Cindy Ofili dominated the 100m hurdles at the recent Sainsbury’s British Championships, the sprint hurdling sisters clocking 12.83 and 12.96 to take gold and silver respectively.
It was the first time British record-holder Porter had gone head-to-head with her younger sister in a 100m hurdles race and the 27-year-old later described it as having been “really special”.
The sisters are both US-born but have a British-born mother and Porter began representing GB in 2010. Her 20-year-old sibling, who set her PB of 12.60 this season, recently followed in her footsteps and had her GB allegiance confirmed last month.
Speaking of Ofili’s potential after their medal-winning performances in Birmingham on Saturday, Porter said: “She’s a fierce competitor. If she continues to improve I know big things are in store for her.”
