With new Personal Best times of 13.72s and 7.71s, set during the 2011 Outdoor and 2012 Indoor seasons (consolidating a Top 5 UK ranking) Julz sat within touching distance of achieving the elusive 'A' qualification standard and fulfilling a longstanding dream by gaining selection for the London 2012 Olympic Games. However a freak accident at the start of the summer season, whilst competing in a grand prix event in Belgium, would bring an abrupt halt to his 2012 ambitions; with knee ligament damage cruelly ending his season and ruling him out of Olympic contention.
Having achieved what he has to date as a part-time athlete, his sights are now firmly set on overcoming this single biggest setback of his career and re-establishing himself as a medal contender ahead of 2014's Glasgow Commonwealth Games, the 2016 Olympic Games and London's 2017 World Athletic Championships, as he attempts to lead his charge full-time, only through the help of external sponsorship. Few can doubt that with the necessary backing he is seeking, Julz will soon be a force to be reckoned with and a major championship contender for British athletics in the 110m Hurdles.
One to watch, Julz Adeniran is one of tomorrow's athletes... Who needs your help today!
