East burst onto the scene in 2002, by snatching a bronze medal at the 2002 European Indoor Championships in Vienna, which was followed up by a somewhat surprising gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester, when East relied on his trademark sprint finish to take the title, defeating luminaries including Kenya’s William Chirchir and Canada’s Kevin Sullivan.

After reaching the semi-finals at the 2003 World Championships, East had initially won a medal at the 2004 World Indoor Championships but after a protest from the Kenyan team, East was disqualified and lost his medal to Laban Rotich but this did not deter East from making great strides. At the Rome Golden League meeting in 2004, East shattered his lifetime best, clocking 3:32.37, before placing sixth at the Olympic Games, as well as earning the merit of being the only British athlete to make an individual track final in Athens.

The following season, East could not find any consistency and after running 3:33 at the London Grand Prix, East was eliminated at the semi-final stage at the World Championships, before winning the Emsley Carr mile in Sheffield.

However, injuries ruled him out of the Commonwealth Games in 2006 and all of the 2007 season and after failing to gain selection for Beijing, combined with injury problems, East decided to retire from the sport but intends to move into coaching.
