BIOGRAPHY

Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake burst on to the international scene in 2016, running the fourth fastest 200m of 2016 at the time in May.

He clocked 19.95 seconds in America when he was based at Louisiana State University to become the second quickest Briton ever in the process in 2016.

That form earned him a spot Rio 2016, where he reached the semi-finals of the men's 200m, finishing fifth in his semi in a time of 20.25.

But his real success came in 2017, finishing fourth in the 200m at the World Championships, in London, before claiming gold as part of Britain's 4x100m quartet.

The Newham-born sprinter ran 9.99s in 2017 to join the likes of Reece Prescod, Zharnel Hughes and CJ Ujah to achieve the feat.

Mitchell-Blake earned his first European Championship medal in 2017 by finishing second in the 200m in Berlin in a time of 20.04.

That success was followed by a gold medal in the 4x100m with Great Britain defending their European crown at the Olympiastadion.
