Ever since winning gold at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games in the 1500m, Nick Willis has been a star in the black singlet for New Zealand and proudly carried the flag in at the London 2012 Olympics. He further cemented his reputation as one of New Zealand’s great 1500m runners by winning the silver medal at the Beijing Olympics and then a bronze medal at the Delhi Commonwealth Games.

Based in Michigan, USA, Nick has competed in the last 2 Olympic and Commonwealth Games and last 3 World Championships in the 1500m. He has his sights firmly set on running the double at Glasgow in the 1500m and 5000m.
