"Alex has been a first class coach on my Met-Track scheme," explained John, "and in fact his uncle, Robert Farish, was a hugely talented member of my early Blackheath Harriers youth team sides!
"Seeing his mum, who I knew then in her infancy, and realising that Robert has moved on so far in life (now living in Moscow), is a serious wake-up call to how time flies," he went on, " but, most importantly, Alex is a massive talent, and I'm delighted he has joined the group. Hopefully we can help him move on to the next level, and progress an already outstanding career."
Al Ameen, from Bromley, Kent, has trained in the past along British hurdles legend Andy Turner among others, sharing various foams into the USA to work alongside world class talents such as David Oliver.
