James first picked up a javelin at his school year 7 sports day and broke his year 7 school record. The following year he won his District Schools trials by just 1cm, after which he began training with Carolyn Franks at Cheltenham & County Harriers. At first, his athletics training was fitted around his football, at which he showed great promise, having a trial with Chelsea aged 15. However javelin became the preferred option after winning bronze at his first English Schools Championships in 2002. Silver followed in 2003, then gold in 2004 and 2006, rounding off a superb schools athletics career. 2006 in particular stands out as a career highlight because of the tremendous atmosphere at that event.

James throws for Scotland as his father is a Scot. He is the current Scottish record holder at U17, U20 and Senior levels. He gained valuable experience when given junior opportunities to throw for Scotland at the Celtic Games and was unbeaten in all four appearances. At his second, in Belfast, he met Steve Backley for the first time and got his autograph!

He has been lucky to travel extensively in his junior career both for competitions and training and looks forward to this continuing for several years to come.

Outside of athletics, he passed his Honours swimming badge aged just 10 and has a PE degree from Leeds Metropolitan University. He was sidelined from action for 2012 after two shoulder operations and unfortunately has undergone further shoulder surgery on 15/7/13, from which he is determined to recover and return to action in 2014.
