AFTER starting to run, as a way to escape school bullies at the age of 11, Nowra's Paul Greene went on to reach the pinnacle as a track sprinter.
His track and field resume includes two Commonwealth Games, one junior World Championships (which saw him claim bronze medal at Plovdiv in 1990), two World Championships, a World Indoors, World Cup and World University Games - before his career culminated at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.
During this time, he famously claimed he was the "fastest white man in the Commonwealth" at the Auckland Commonwealth Games as a 17-year-old.
Since then, Greene has moved into the music industry, where he has released numerous albums, both as a solo artist but also with his band Ghostwriters - while also spending time with drummer Rob Hirst (Midnight Oil) and bassist Rick Grossman (ex-Hoodoo Gurus).
His career has now come full circle as he now has returned to the athletics scene, helping coach some of Shoalhaven's up and coming track stars, including his daughters.
Hear all about his amazing journey, both in sport but also in music, in his in-depth one-on-one chat with sports editor Courtney Ward.
