"100 per cent, I can beat the best in the world," he said. "I love championship races. I always seem to step up, improve or run a seasons best at a championships".

"You need to win things to be remembered. I'd love to win things more often. I'd love to get back to there and take it from there.

"To say the records are easy is a massive disrespect but they're three attainable records.

"I could do them in one season if the races all fall in. I'll definitely be close. Its one of those things where I'd like to get my name in the record books. It gives confidence moving forward." Said Osagie.
