BIOGRAPHY

James Ellington made his senior major championship debut at the 2011 World Championships in Daegu but didn’t progress through his heat.

James booked his place in the Olympic team for 2012 with 200m victory at the trials, and he then went on to become a member of the successful men’s 4x100m relay team, running the fastest time in 15 years by a British quartet on the way to IAAF World Relays bronze in 2014.

James was in the relay squad that won silver at the 2014 Commonwealth Games before helping then Great Britain win 4x100m gold later that year at the European Championships in Zurich. 

At Rio 2016, Ellington clocked 10.29 in his first round heat, failing to make the semi-finals, and followed that up with a fifth place finish as part of the men's 4x100m relay.
