Reece Prescod net worth: How much did the disqualified Great Britain sprinter make during his career?
In a crushing defeat for Team GB, REECE Prescod was disqualified from the Men’s 100-meter semi-final today. What is the athlete’s worth?
Reece Prescod, the Olympic sprinter, was disqualified from the men’s 100-meter semi-final this morning. While the news is disappointing for the athlete, he has had a successful career.
Based on Forbes and Business Insider study, the 25-year-old is worth an estimated $1.5 million (roughly £1 million), according to FamousBirthdays.
At the European Athletic Championships in 2018, Prescod set a new personal best of 9.94 seconds.
In 2018, the sprinter broke the 10-second barrier three times, including a wind-assisted 9.88 at the Eugene Diamond League event in Oregon.
He qualified first for the 2019 World Championships in Athletics in Great Britain, beating out former finalist James Dasaolu.
Prescod competed in the men’s 100 meters at the Championships.
He finished sixth in the final of the competition.
In 2018, the London-born runner successfully defended his British title.
He finished second in the final of the 2018 European Athletics Championships.
Only his teammate Zharnel Hughes beat him.
In his earlier years, Prescod won a number of prestigious awards.
He was England’s under-20 champion in 2013.
Meanwhile, he was the number one junior 200-meter runner in 2015.
Despite the fact that he had only raced four races at the time, he won.
The runner, though, has encountered a few setbacks along the road.
He, like most Olympians, has faced with injuries that have hindered his training progress in the past.
He’s had to take time off owing to hamstring issues over the years.
As a result, he was only able to run once in 2014, five times in 2015, and only eight times in 2016.
Fortunately, this did not prevent him from qualifying for the 2020 Olympics, which were postponed by a year.
Unfortunately, he was disqualified in the men’s first 100 meter semi-finals on Sunday morning.
A false start resulted in the disqualification.
His GB teammate Zharnel Hughes, on the other hand, won the second semi-final.
