URGENT SURGERY FOR 100M JAMES DASAOLU

£14,351 of £25,000 goal

Raised by 333 people in 11 days
Created November 30, 2018
James Dasaolu is the 2nd fastest 100m athlete in the UK with a time of 9.91, second only to Linford Christie. James has been in the finals of the World Championship, was the European Champion in 2014, has several British medals, indoors and outdoors and  came runner up in the European Indoor Championship in 2013. Not to mention being a two time Olympian and being crowned IAAF Continental Cup Champion in 2014. 

Funding by UK athletics was not granted over the last three years, despite becoming British Champion in 2016 and representing his country at the IAAF World Championship in 2017. This means that treatment and travels was funded by James from his own pockets over the last three years.

The issue at stake is that James is still very much able to regain podium performance. Whilst training on friday sustained a rupture to his Achilles tendon,  this will require urgent surgery which will cost £9000.
In order to rehab, prepare and travel with appropriate medical interventions, we need to raise £25000 in total. The immediate need for surgery is crucial for James if he is ever to return to top flight athletics.

As a full time athlete, husband and father to three children, he has needed to engage in paid jobs to keep himself going and attend to training. This shows how determined and dedicated he is to his sport and family.

Funding him will allow him to focus and achieve the objective of contesting for a medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

We thank you for supporting James on this journey to recovery
