David Bolarinwa (born 20 October 1993) is a British sprinter.

At the inaugural 2010 Summer Youth Olympics in Singapore, Bolarinwa won a bronze medal at the 100 metres, behind Odane Skeen and Masaki Nashimoto. He had entered the race as the favourite, since he ran a world leading 10.39 sec just two weeks earlier, and was the fastest in the qualifying heats.[1][2]

Competing for Woolwich Polytechnic, Bolarinwa won 100 m at the 2010 UK School Games, breaking his own school games record to finish in 10.81 seconds.[3]

Bolarinwa's personal best of 10.39 sec is the second-fastest by an under-17 year old ("Youth") in the UK, second only to Mark Lewis-Francis' 10.31 sec in 1999.[4]
