Greg Rutherford says that he might hang up his spikes for good after the next Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.
The 28-year-old took Commonwealth gold in Glasgow last year to add to the silver he took from Delhi four years earlier.
While that gold added to his Olympic triumph in 2012 and last year’s European title, there is still one accolade that has so far evaded his grasp.
But if he manages to put that right in Beijing this summer he will have completed his collection and believes the Gold Coast would the perfect place to bow out from the sport.
It was in Melbourne in 2006 that Rutherford made his senior bow and the chance to end his journey in the same country that it started is something that appeals to the Milton Keynes man.
“I’ll get out while still at the top, I hope,” said Rutherford.
“If I win the World Championships, in many ways there’s nothing left for me, but I like the idea of the Commonwealth Games in Australia in 2018.
“The Games in Melbourne in 2006 was my first event in a senior vest, so it would be a nice way to round it off.”
