A Fine British Sprinter

Mark Lewis-Francis is a new face to PUMA but no stranger to the track. MLF began competing at a high level from an early age; he won his first gold medal in the 100m at the World Junior Championships in 2000. At the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Athens, he won a gold medal after running the anchor leg of Great Britain’s winning 4x100m relay team. MLF earned two additional bronze medals in the 4x100m event at the IAAF World Championships in 2005 and 2007. MLF was injured during the 2008 Beijing but he’s expecting to make a strong comeback.
