At the 2006 Commonwealth Games, Martyn Bernard picked up an unexpected silver medal in Melbourne and in 2010 he medalled again, this time with a bronze clearing 2.29m.

He is an athlete who can rise for the big occasion and he demonstrated his temperament at the 2007 European Indoor Championships, when he set a lifetime best of 2.30m in qualifying, before winning a surprise bronze medal in the final, having received tremendous support in front of his home crowd.

At the 2007 World Championships in Osaka, he set a season’s best of 2.29m to comfortably qualify for the final, but his tactics in the final raised eyebrows, as he cleared 2.21m, before not jumping again until 2.33m, before two failed attempts at 2.35m.

At the Olympic Games in Bejing, Bernard qualified easily for the final, and adopted more conservative tactics, compared to Osaka. The 23-year-old was a respectable ninth in the final. In 2010 he finished in bronze medal position at the European Championships with a leap of 2.29m.

He studied psychology at Liverpool's John Moore University from 2004-07.
