James Ellington is the embodiment of the underdog. Even when his athletic career suffered due to a lack of sponsorships, he never gave up. James revolutionized the sponsorship game by securing his spot in the 2012 Olympics by selling himself for sponsorship on eBay. 

He continued to secure his title as a powerful 100-meter relay sprinter by placing 5th in the 4x100 Meter Relay in the 2016 Olympics, 3rd in the IAAF World Relays in 2014, and 1st in the 2014 & 2016 European Championships (all for the 4x100 Meter Relays). His career was abruptly put on hold when a life-threatening motorcycle accident left doctors saying he may never walk, let alone compete, again. James powered through with the mentality of taking it one day at a time. In this podcast, James dives into how he overcame his injuries, his journey with keto to fix hormone imbalances, and how struggling as an underdog gave him the strength to overcome any obstacle.
