About Justin

Justin made his return as one of the top American sprinters in 2011. When Gatlin won gold medals in both the 100m and 200m at the 2005 World Outdoor Championships, he was just the second man in history to win both those races at the same World Championships and his winning margin of 0.17 seconds in the 100m was the biggest in World Championships history. At the USA Outdoor Championships in 2005 Gatlin became the first American sprinter to make the 100m, 200m double at the national championships since Kirk Baptiste in 1985. Justin ran a in the 100m of 9.85 to win the 2004 Olympic gold medal was the second fastest in Olympic history at that time. In just two seasons, when he then left to run professionally, Gatlin won six NCAA titles competing for the University of Tennessee. As a freshman for the Volunteers his time of 10.08 then matched a USA Junior record. Justin’s journey continued in 2012 running a personal best of 9.79 at the London Olympics winning the Bronze Medal and will once again run for Gold against the world’s best track athletes in the 4×100.
