Des Wilkinson Sponsorship Opportunities

Support Des Wilkinson in the European Championships

A little about Des Wilkinson…

In 1978 I started hurdling at secondary school aged 15.

In 1979 at the age of 16, I realised my potential when winning the UK national youth 100m title In a UK aged best time of 13.3 Seconds.

I have won UK youth, junior and senior medals and titles and also represented England and Great Britain in all age groups.

When I turned 40 In 2003 I pressed the reset button to embark on my masters athletics career. 39 years later I am proud to say that I am still passionate and able to compete at a high level over the ‘sticks’!

Please support my 2018 goals to win my 3rd consecutive masters European 60 metre indoor hurdles title on Spanish soil, and winning my first World 100m hurdles outdoor title.
