Carlin Isles
Carlin Isles joined Glasgow Warriors in February 2014 on a short-term deal.
Carlin has been dubbed the fastest rugby player in the world after swapping athletics for rugby in 2012.
His fastest 100 metre time of 10.13 seconds would have qualified for the semi-finals at the London 2012 Olympics and he was ranked as one of the fastest sprinters in the United States.
Born in Ohio, Isles started his rugby career at Gentlemen of Aspen RFC in Colorado, before going on to play for the USA national development team at the Victoria 7s in July 2012.
In October of the same year he made his debut for the USA national sevens team, at the Gold Coast 7s and scored a try in his first minute on the pitch.
Carlin immediately became a key player for the USA Eagles and has been a regular in the team ever since. Utilising his electrifying pace and ability he has scored a number of breathtaking tries for his country.
He has scored 27 tries in 14 sevens tournaments for the USA national team in the IRB Sevens World Series and also featured for his country at the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Russia last year.
He had already signed a training contract to join the Detroit Lions as a wide receiver or running back, after being courted by a number of NFL franchises, however, he was holding out for an opportunity in rugby union.
The Fastest Rugby Player In The World | Great Moments Of Sportsmanship, 25 Oct 2014 [cached]
Carlin Isles is the fastest rugby player in the world. He's a 100m sprinter who heard about rugby, thought it was interesting, asked if he could try it and a few month later he's playing for the USA and running in tries just for fun. An extraordinary athlete. He plays rugby in a refreshingly free style and enjoys every second of it. He plays with a smile on his face and embraces sportsmanship values by applauds the opposition when they tackle him!
Carlin Isles
He wears ear rings, has a vision, and although he's raw (he's only playing a few months), he is extremely talented, yet humble. It was a real pleasure meeting him and chatting with him at The Rugby Business Network.
My name is Carlin Isles and I'm with the USA rugby team.
Carlin, you play rugby with freedom and enjoyment, which is lacking in the game today, and that's why The Great Sportsmanship Programme wants to show you to the rest of the world because you play with a smile on your face, you give a hand shake and boy are you a great runner, so good luck with your rugby career.
