Double world champion Christine Ohuruogu says it is a "beautiful feeling" when you succeed as part of a team.
Ohuruogu - who won 400m gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and is the only British female to medal at three successive Games - has won an astonishing 11 relay medals at World and European level.
Speaking in episode 29 of Sky Sports' My Icon series, Ohuruogu said: "The most beautiful thing about being on a team is that no matter where you are or where you have come from, we all unite at that one time to wear our kit - and to stand on the podium for those of us that are fortunate enough to make it.
"You see that [even more] in the relays where everyone comes together," Sporting Equals ambassador Ohuruogu added.
"It is such a beautiful feeling to be able to celebrate with your team-mates, and to be proud, and for the country to be proud of your efforts.
"To see your flag go up above everybody else's, to know that you've gone and elevated your country in some way because of the work that you have done is a really good feeling."
Ohuruogu talks about her journey in the latest instalment of My Icon, which premieres on Saturday at 12.30pm on Sky Sports Mix and is available On Demand. The episode is repeated on Saturday at 7.15pm and 10pm.
