He picked up a Gold medal in the 2004 Olympics in Athens and Darren Campbell would be handed another golden gong if Rovers loanee Harry Chapman had his way.

Campbell, who was a regular runner for Great Britain and England in two Olympics and numerous World Championships events, has been working closely with Chapman ahead of his return to action.
 
And Harry is hugely appreciative to the 44-year-old for his assistance and is set to show off a new running technique when he does finally recover from the hamstring injury picked up in October at Wigan.
 
So, just how useful has Campbell been? Harry explains.
 
"I’ve been working with the sprinter Darren Campbell to work on my running technique and it’ll benefit me in the long run," he told iFollow Rovers after watching Rovers win against Walsall.
 
“There is a bit more bounce in my first few steps and he’s advised me to open up, relax my arms and shoulders and it helps a lot. Minor things can make you quicker - it’s amazing really.
 
“It’ll benefit my career. It’s great to work with him and have his time. I really appreciate it."
 
And bearing in mind he wasn't slow to begin with, we can't wait to see an even quicker Chapman terrorising defences again soon.
