Tonbridge AC racewalker Tom Bosworth is to retire from athletics at the end of the season.
A silver medallist at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia, Bosworth, 32, announced on social media on Thursday that injuries have taken their toll and he was ending his career which began full-time in 2009 - but he is determined to finish on a high with another Commonwealth medal at Birmingham this summer.
"At the end of the season I am going to be retiring from athletics," he said.
"It's not been an easy decision to make, it's not one I've rushed into, but now feels like the right time, what with a home Commonwealth Games.
"And rest assured I'm going to be going all out to win another medal, in front of a home crowd, this summer.
"I'm still able to compete at my best, train full-time and give my all despite having some injuries with my back and some problems there. And that's why I haven't wanted to carry on."
Bosworth joined Tonbridge AC as an 11-year-old and began full-time training at Leeds Beckett University with coach Andi Drake.
He made his Team GB debut in 2009 and his first taste of a major championships came at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi in 2010, where he finished 11th. Part of Team GB's Olympic squad for 2016, he finished sixth in the 20k racewalk and was 25th last year in Tokyo.
The current world-record holder over 3,000m indoors and outdoors, and the fastest man in the world over one mile, Bosworth has also won multiple British titles and holds British records over 20k and 5,000m indoors.
"I cannot believe what I have managed to achieve - two Olympics, the world and British records," he added.
"It's all so surreal, I just started athletics for fun and for fitness so to have had the career I've had I feel so lucky and privileged.
"I couldn't have done it without my team in Leeds who have supported me for over 10 years and this is why hopefully I can celebrate everything I have achieved with one last big amazing summer.
"Competing of course at a home Commonwealth Games is just the perfect way to go out."
