I brought up football because that is were we happened to find Adam Gemili so anyone else want to mention football participation rates?
Someone answer the question How likely are we to have another Adam Gemili come to athletics from football.
Guys here an example that I am talking about:

100: 10.98 (6th all time list)
200: 22.19 (2nd all time list)
Currently on loan from chelsea at Crewe Alexanda playing in league two (the lowest professional league in our country)
