Pozzi qualified for a place in Team GB for London 2012 with a time of 13.41 seconds.
The trials, which took place in Birmingham last weekend, saw University of the West of England (UWE) student Pozzi finish above Lawrence Clarke and European Champion, Andy Turner.
After the victory, Pozzi tweeted, ‘Made up with today’s result! Officially an Olympian in waiting and UK champion. Thanks everyone for all the support, it’s been incredible!’
Alex Isaac, head of sport at UWE said, ‘As a future Olympian and high achiever in education, Andrew is a fantastic ambassador for UWE Bristol and a role model for aspiring children seeking to combine education with a sporting career. We are absolutely delighted for him and look forward to cheering him on in our home Olympics.’
Aged just 20, Pozzi already has an impressive string of achievements to his name; he’s currently the UK senior indoor champion and also holds the British junior record.
The first round of the men’s 110 metre hurdles takes place at Olympic Stadium, London, on 7 August.
