31-Year-Old Eugene Amo-Dadzie Becomes World’s Fastest Accountant

For a man who has only taken up the sport of running less than five years ago at the ripe old age of 26, the feat he has just accomplished has eluded runners who have dominated the sport.

According to BBC Sport, 30-year-old Eugene Amo-Dadzie, who admittingly just picked up the sport of running in the summer of 2018, has run an amazingly fast 9.93-second to win a race in Graz, Austria, earlier this month. That performance which took place in a 100m race, was the fastest time for a British runner this year. That number also places him in the top 5 British all-time lists coming in tied at number 4. Not bad for someone who is actually an accountant.

Amo-Dadzie’s record-breaking run also made him the fastest European of this current season, the 13th fastest man in the world of running and places him as one of only two Britons to win with a time under 10 seconds thus far this year, joining Reece Presscod in the feat.

When he started to take the sport seriously, he initiated his first training session at Woodford Green Athletics Club. He then was able to reach the British Championships semi-finals when he raced against Olympians Adam Gemili and Harry Aikines-Aryeetey. In that season, he had a personal best of 10.55, and then that went down to 10.20 in 2021 and then last year he ran a time of 10.05.

“I feel like I came into the sport at the right time. The head that I had on my shoulders at that time has allowed me to navigate this thing in a sensible way. I very much enjoy that I have a different story. I still refer to myself as an accountant that happens to operate in the world of track and field.”

With the result of his last rate, it seems that he is only going to break another record after having beaten previous years’ best.

Now he is the world’s fastest accountant.
