The athlete only converted to his new sport a few months ago but is already taking it by storm. When your personal best time at 100 metres is 10.13, then well you should.

Isles was ranked the 78th fastest man in the world at 100 metres before he went for a change of sport, a time that would have qualified him for the semi-finals of the Olympics in London.

As you can see in the video, he has taken well to his new sport.
