Quote Of The Day
“Honestly, I don’t remember how to run the 200m, so it’s a work in progress, hopefully by national trials I will get there. … Time is running out and I have been running only the 100m for years now and most sprinters are running the double and I want to give it a shot. … I know that I have a lot more in me and that’s why I am not giving up. I have a lot more in me.”
