James (27/06/1978) was raised in Clevedon, Somerset and competes for Cardiff. Having resided in Wales for most of his adult life, James opted to compete for Wales in international competition and has done so in two Commonwealth Games (Melbourne 2006 and Delhi 2010).
During his 25 year athletics career, James has represented Great Britain multiple times and has made major championship finals in the 1500m at World and European level.
Although he is still competing (he is the 2014 World Masters Indoor champion in the 800m, 1500m and 3000m) he has since turned his main focus to coaching. Since his first athlete in 2007, James now coaches over 30 athletes in distances ranging from the 400m up to Marathon.
