I know some of you like your athletics. For those that haven't seen it, Adam Gemili is currently the fastest Brit and the 2nd fastest European over 100m this year. He clocked 10.08 a week or so ago at just 18 Eek



That's fast enough for Usain Bolt to be interviewed about him in the Guardian and if they decide to go for it he has a good shot at making London!

That's a f**king stupidly quick time for anyone, let alone an 18 year old kid.

Awesome...his last 30m or so was very impressive and powerful

Lewis-Francis ran some great times as a Junior IIRC, but for one reason or another, never quite made it at senior level

conversely, lunch box Linford didnt run any decent times until he was 25 or 26

Agreed. Hopefully Adam can make the transition. He is good kid.

After just reading about the guy, he seems split on whether to play football or do athletics.


Last I heard he quit football in January. I think this time will have made that decision a lot easier.

That was awesome. By far the best in gb at the mo. Can't see him not going to the olympics, can't see him having that much trouble at the trials. That was a ridiculous start from the guy on the left.

dont forget dasalou he has run 10.06 this year but slightly windy


i hope the guy decides to go for it not like he will have another chance to compete in an olympic games in his home town

he will needto perform well in the trials as a fast time alone does not automatically select him


we all know what t**ts run sports!!!

At the London and South East England Champs a fews years ago he turned up and was the only non black kid in the race and he gave up a foot in height to some of them. He was getting all sorts of 'what the f**k are you doing here' looks.

He won by about 10m.

2.08 guy? Ill be training with him next year.

The guy who looked to make an amazing start got disqualified after the race. I hope Adam beats them all at the trials. Some of these sprinters still getting lottery funding are a joke.
