BIOGRAPHY

Harry Aikines-Aryeetey was double World Youth Champion in 2005 and was awarded the ‘Rising Star of the Year’ award by the IAAF and the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award.

He discovered he was a good sprinter when he ran away from a barking dog when he was a youngster and in 2006 he became World Junior Champion over 100m.

Having helped Great Britain win 4x100m relay bronze at the 2009 World Championships, Harry won his first senior individual medal at the 2014 European Championships in Zurich where he finished third in a time of 10.22 seconds. He was selected to run for Team GB at Rio 2016.
