• Bobsledder Joel Fearon clocks 9.96 seconds at English National Championships

Article source:

Over the weekend a big surprise produced bobsledder Joel Fearon, who clocked 9.96 seconds to win 100m at the English Athletics Championships.

Fearon, who will not compete at the Rio Olympics, produced  the joint-third fastest time in history of Great Britain. 

Linford Christie holds  the British record of 9.87 seconds, while James Dasaolu is in second with 9.91 seconds in British all time lists.  Joel Fearon and Chijindu Ujah share the 3rd position with 9.96 seconds. There are only seven British Athletes in history that have run 100m faster than 10 seconds.

At the 2014 Olympic games in Sochi, Fearon was part of the 4-man bobsleigh team  that placed in 5th place. 

Despite his world class performance, Fearon will not try compete at next year's world championships in London. His main focus for now is to prepare well for 2015-2016 bobsleigh season and  2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
