David Gillick of Ireland talks about training changes and the Europe Circuit in 2011. David Gillick is now training in Claremont, FL with Coach Lance Brauman and some of the fastest sprinters in the world. For Gillick, this is his first stop in Lausanne and he will be running the 400 meters at the Diamond League Meet.

Gillick specializes in the 400 metres and he won the European Indoor Championship in 2005 and 2007, as well as the Irish National Outdoor Championship in 2006 & 2007. He set the Irish Indoor record of 45.52 seconds in the 2007 final. The time also beat the Irish outdoor record of 45.58 and was within the Olympic 'A' qualifying standard for the 2008 Games. On 4 July 2009 he ran 44.77 seconds in a race in Madrid to set a new national record. He is also the 2009 Irish national 200 m champion.

In the 2010 IAAF World Indoor Championships Gillick was the second fastest qualifier in both the heats & semi-finals but finished 5th in the final and was later disqualified as a result of a collision with the American Bershawn Jackson with 200 metres to go. At the European outdoors that year he became the first Irishman to reach the final of the 400m where he again finished 5th.
