Few athletes get the opportunity to compete at a major Games in their hometown, but that is what awaits Niall Farrell.
The Birmingham-born boxer travelled to Tokyo as a sparring partner last year, but knows now is the time to take centre stage himself. He already has a European silver medal from 2017 under his belt before a tendon injury put his career on hold for three years.
