GO TIME FOR 2012 !

Trackspeed1 at last open their 2012 account tomorrow (Saturday 21st) at the Tom Jones Memorial Meeting, in Gainsville, Florida, USA.

All but one of the athletes currently in the southern state for pre-season training will be in action, mostly in the 100m and 200m events.

World Championship sprinter James Ellington leads the field in both sprints, while European Junior 200m champion David Bolarinwa will be looking to tag on to his coat tails as he has been in training this last week.

England Champion Ed Harrison goes over 400m hurdles, and the whole squad will be supported by coach John Powell, and TeamGB lead physio' John Allen, who has joined the party for the second part of their training camp.

"We are in pretty good shape," confirmed John Powell, "and apart from the normal one or two niggles pre-season, the Gainsville meet should be a positive opener.  I'm never looking for PB's first time out - just good, well-executed performances.  Our programme doesn't lend itself to early peaks, but comparisons with previous years will be interesting, as one or two guys have shattered training rep' times from 2011."

Trackspeed1 are in the States for another 10 days, with a second warm-up meet in Orlando - the 20th Florida Gliders Spring Classic, at Lake Brantley High School, on Saturday April 28th.
