BIOGRAPHY

Before taking up athletics, Adam Gemili was a promising footballer, playing for non-league Thurrock as well as spending time in the youth academy at Chelsea.

But the London-born athlete was so speedy on the pitch that he switched to sprinting, making his Olympic Games debut at London 2012, where he reached the semi-finals.

In 2014, Gemili took silver in the 100m and the 4x100m relay at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Gemili has not stopped there though, and ran his first legal sub-ten second race at the Diamond League in Birmingham in May 2015, clocking 9.97 seconds.

Returning to the London Stadium for the 2017 World Championships, Gemili formed part of the team which took gold in the 4x100m relay, joining up with CJ Ujah, Danny Talbot and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake to take the win.
