As a junior Mark Lewis-Francis won the 100m at the World Youth Championships, World Junior Championships and European Junior Championships. He set a World Junior 60m Record of 6.51 and won the bronze medal at the 2001 World Indoor Championships and later that year at the World Championships in Edmonton ran 9.97 for the 100m which was a new World Junior Record (but the time was not ratified due to a faulty wind gauge). The highlight of his career was anchoring Team GB to Olympic Games 4x100m Gold in 2004 in Athens. He also won 4x100m golds at the European Championships and Commonwealth Games as well as two bronze medals at World Championships level. Individually he won 100m silvers at the 2010 European Championships and Commonwealth Games.
