World Junior 200m bronze medallist Michael O'Hara has signed a long term professional contract with world leading sportswear company Puma.
O'Hara, who won gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 110m hurdles at Champs 2015, will be represented by agent Ricky Simms of PACE Sports Management and managed by Nugent Walker, the same team who has guided the professional career of the world's fastest man Usain Bolt.
"I am delighted to sign with Puma and take the next step in my professional career. I trust that Ricky and NJ will look after my best interests and allow me to concentrate on running fast and winning medals in the years to come," said the 19 year old sprint star.
Agent Ricky Simms commented, "Michael is one of the world's top young sprinters. He is a World Youth Champion and multiple Jamaican Champion. Under the coaching guidance of Glen Mills I am confident that he has a very bright future."
