Andrew Pozzi

Sport/Event: Athletics – 110m hurdles
Place of Birth: UK
Coached by: Malcolm Arnold

Andrew trained at the University of Bath from 2011 to 2017, during which time he competed at two Olympic Games and established himself as one of Britain’s top 100m hurdlers.

Coached by Malcolm Arnold, Andrew won  silver at the 2011 European Junior Championships – his first international final – before making his senior breakthrough by winning the 60m hurdles title at the 2012 UK Indoor Championships, which he followed up with gold outdoors over 110m at the UK Championships in June.

His performance at the UK Indoors earned him a place on the GB team at the World Indoor Championships in Turkey, where he just missed out on the 60m hurdles medals in fourth.

He was selected to make his Olympic debut at London 2012 but injury prevented him from finishing his heat and went on to hamper his career for the next three years. However, he has made a strong return during 2016 and repeatedly smashed his personal best on his way to a second British title and Rio 2016 qualification.

He set a PB of 13.19s at the Anniversary Games in London, a time which would have secured a bronze medal at Rio should he have replicated it. Unfortunately things didn’t pan out the way Andrew would have liked in Brazil and he was eliminated in the semi-finals.

Andrew bounced back by being crowned as both European and World indoor 60m champion in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
