Aston Merrygold: 'If I wasn't in JLS I'd be representing the UK at the Olympics'

JLS have lent their support to the 2012 London Olympic Games and member Aston Merrygold admitted that if he wasn't in the popular boyband he would love to represent the UK. 

The lads, who earlier this year revealed they were given sought-after tickets by the athlete Jessica Ennis, are all huge fans of the international sporting event, but Merrygold opened up about his passion for competing on Daybreak and explained that he would have tried to take part if he hadn't become a singer:

"Being in the Olympics. I competed for the country once or twice. (I'd love to do) 100m, 200m, long jump and triple jump... If they let me."

The 'Love You More' hitmakers recently gave their voices to this year's official Sport Relief single and spoke of their pride at representing such a worthy cause:

"Going out there and seeing some really disturbing things as well as amazing things. People go through some serious hardships but yet they're so appreciative of being alive every day and waking up in the morning."





"One thing it did is made us more determined to make this single as big a success as possible and make as much money as we can to really change these people's lives."
