We caught up with Phillips Idowu at a recent Alfa Romeo (opens in new tab) press event at the futuristic Lee Valley Athletics Centre. While wearing possibly the loudest pair of shoes we've ever seen (check the video for proof), he explained the technique he's going to use to win us a medal at the 2012 Olympics.
