Adam Gemili is the current World Junior and European U23 100m champion.

Gemili won a gold medal in the 100m at the IAAF World Junior Championships in 2012. His winning time of 10.05 seconds established a new championship record, and is the second fastest ever run by a European junior.  

Having cleared the Olympic qualifying time with 10.08 seconds in the 100 metres in June 2012, Gemili competed at London 2012, coming third in the semi-finals with a time of 10.06 seconds, only 0.04 seconds short of qualifying for the Olympic Final.

He won his first senior medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, coming second to Jamaica's Kemar Bailey-Cole in the 100m final. Two weeks later, Gemili took his first senior title, winning the 200m at the European Athletics Championships.
