Athlete main content


Jonnie Peacock was one of the stars of the London Paralympic Games when the then 19-year-old made history to win the T44 100m ahead of Richard Browne and Alan Oliveira.

Peacock has won every major medal available with gold at London followed by a repeat four years later at Rio 2016.

He won World Championship gold in 2013 in Lyon, but injury meant he was unable to defend his title two years later in Doha. However, Peacock reclaimed the world title at London 2017 much to the delight of the home crowd.

At European level he has been equally prolific with gold medals coming at the IPC European Championships in Swansea in 2014 and Grosseto in 2016.

In 2017 Peacock competed on the BBC show Strictly Come Dancing. He was forced to withdraw from the GB team for the 2019 World Championships due to injury.

Peacock missed out on completing a hat trick of consecutive Paralympic titles winning T64 100m bronze at Tokyo 2020. The Cambridge-born sprinter crossed the line in 10.79 - the same time given to Germany’s T62 sprinter Johannes Floors, and so the pair shared bronze. Gold was won by Floors’ teammate Felix Streng.

Peacock ran the second leg of the 4x100m Universal Relay quartet who won silver at Tokyo 2020.
