Follow the story of James Dasaolu, two time Olympian and the second quickest British 100m athlete of all time, chasing his dream to win Gold at Tokyo 2020.
James has been to the finals of the World Championships and was the European Champion in 2014. James has amassed several British medals, via indoor and outdoor competitions, and came runner up in the European Indoor Championship in 2013.
After rupturing his Achilles tendon in November 2018, James required expensive career saving surgery. Financial support came from the British public via a crowd-funding campaign and allowed immediate treatment to take place. A few months on from his surgery, James talked to us about his recovery and motivation to get fully fit in time for Tokyo 2020.
As a full time athlete, husband and father, James has needed to engage in paid jobs outside of athletics to help to support his dream. As an Athlete, James relies on his body and fitness to provide an income. His dedication to the sport, his family and his dream are why everyone at Meglio is fully behind James and we can't wait to see him racing again at Tokyo 2020!
