James Ellington Athlete

Documentary that follows a number of top young British sprinters as they attempt to make it to the 2012 London Olympics. Made in partnership with Adidas, the film follows four young athletes, James Ellington, Richard Alleyne, Jeanette Kwakye and Omardo Anson, for a period of four years as they pursue their dreams of qualifying for the Olympics in their home nation.

We recently caught up with Olympic athlete and British champion sprinter James Ellington, thankfully when he was stationary and trackside at Goodwood Circuit. We’re not quite there when it comes to running 100m in 10 seconds.
