Shemar Boldizsar is a 200m sprinter at St Mary’s University in Twickenham.

His 2019 season was one full of personal bests that culminated in him winning the gold medal at the European U23 Championships for Great Britain in July.

At just 20-years-old, Boldizsar has a bright future ahead of him in athletics. 

His personal best in the 200m is 20.65 and if he can continue to bring that time down, he will be challenging for a spot at the Olympics.

Whether is 2020, or 2024, Boldizsar is on track to make his mark on the Olympic games.
