ABOUT Curtis Mitchell

Stellar Athletics was delighted to start 2011 with the signing of Curtis Mitchell.

From the USA Curtis is just beginning an athletics career that is promising great things . At 6ft4 he is one of the tallest sprinters around and has shown in his 2010 performances that he has the tools to be a very successful international athlete.

The graduate of Atlantic High School in Port Orange, Florida showed good all round sports pedigree by competing at a high level in basketball, gridiron football and also claimed senior district titles in the long jump.

In 2009 Curtis claimed the 200m title (20.80) in the Junior College Division of the Mt. SAC Relays, won So Cal JC 200m finals in 20.87. His 10.35 was good enough for a third place finish in the 100m.

But it was his efforts in 2010 particularly that caught the attention of Stellar Athletics. Running for Texas A&M, a university he chose because of its coaching staff and how well the programmes are designed and built for the athletes, he won the NCAA indoor title in March with 20.38, which was the world leading time in 2010. Curtis then competed outdoors and improved his 200m PB to a brilliant 19.99 when he won the NACAC Meet.

Curtis has joined the training group of Lance Brauman in Florida which includes Tyson Gay and fellow Stellar stablemate Steve Mullings.
