Geminli holds a personal best time of 10.05 seconds he ran at the world junior championship final. Yohan Blake, was the youngest man to break 10 seconds, which he did at the age of 19 years and 196 days. 

 ‘I hope to go under 10 seconds in the next year. With a full winter training, working on my technique and staying injury free it could happen.

‘Competing in London has done a lot for me. Winning the World Juniors was amazing, being in London and going against the real deal, Usain Bolt, Tyson Gay and Yohan Blake, it was nerve-wracking. But it just showed me that it’s not impossible to get to the level they’re at.’ Geminli said.
