Gold Medal Olympic Champion Carlton Chambers first made a mark on the Canadian athletic scene when he set a national junior record in the 100 metres in 1994.
He brought his talents to the international stage later that year, winning bronze in the 4x100m relay at the World Junior Championships and gold in the same event at the Commonwealth Games alongside Donovan Bailey, Glenroy Gilbert, and Bruny Surin. In the lead-up to the 1996 Summer Olympics, Chambers competed for Clemson University in South Carolina and at the 1996 NCAA Championships, finished fourth in the 100m. In the opening heat of the 4×100 relay at the 1996 Games, Chambers’ quartet ran the second-fastest times in the heats, behind only the storied Americans, and repeated this feat in the semi-finals. His contribution to the relay team helped Canada’s 4 X 100m Relay Team win the Olympic Gold Medal in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.
Carlton was inducted into the Mississauga Sports Council Hall of Fame in 2005 and, with his gold medal-winning relay team, Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame in 2006. As a Sports Performance and Sprint Coach Carlton brings loads of skill and experience to the Running For Your Life Brand.
