Dartford sprinter Adam Gemili has been given a major boost ahead of the Olympics, with a stunning victory in the 100 metre final at the World Junior Championships in Barcelona.
He clocked a remarkable time of 10.05 seconds - a championship record and a new British Junior record, beating the previous mark of 10.06s set by Dwain Chambers 15 years ago.
It is also a personal best for the 18-year-old, eclipsing his 10.08s run in Germany earlier this year.
Remarkably Gemili only made a full-time commitment to athletics in January this year - six months ago he was a League Two footballer.
He will be the youngest member of the Team GB athletics squad at the London 2012 Olympics.
