Trackspeed1 coach John Powell is in Belgium this weekend, and he has said that time has now run out!  It's time to rock! - or perform - the trials for both World Juniors and the Olympics are simply 3-4 weeks away, and there can be no more hiding!

James Ellington, David Bolarinwa and Edmond Amaning are due to compete in the IFAM athletics meeting in Oordegem, on what is billed as Belgium's fastest track tomorrow (Saturday).

Ellington is chasing an Olympic qualifying time over 200 metres of 20.60s, while Bolarinwa will be looking to consolidate his position as one of Britain's leading contenders for the World Junior Championships, in Barcelona, in July.  Amaning will be looking to underline his position as the dark horse of junior sprinting in the UK when he contests the 200m in Belgium among classy senior opposition!

"We've had the most positive start to the season ever," said John, "but that will mean nothing unless we deliver appropriate performances at the right time - in other words at the trials!"

Other Trackspeed1 athletes are also competing nearer to home, with Jason Hussain representing Crawley AC in the British League, Melvyn Anukam joining Belgrave Harriers for their British League meet, and Kieran Daly contesting a Blackheath and Bromley open meeting on Monday night in Norman Park, Bromley.

David Bolarinwa has been invited to join the British Senior team, in Regensberg, Germany, for an international meeting where he will be part of the relay squad and also a contestant in the 200m.  It is the same venue where training partner James Ellington won his 10m, for Great Britain last year.
