programme in the Florida sunshine
The majority of the squad are crossing the Atlantic this year to put the finishing touches to their summer season preparations, although some are not due to fly until a little later this month.
One of those still in the UK elected to begin his season early this year, and competed in the Herne Hill Open meeting in Tooting, promptly annihilating his personal best over 200m with a fine 22.25s blast with a zero wind reading. Ishmael Smith-John was all smiles after his run, and was soon receiving many plaudits from across the Atlantic.
"It's ever so early right now," said Trackspeed1-UK Head Coach John Powell, "but if you put down a PB in any of your opening meets, that is always a great morale booster. Our programme will never peak athletes for April, so hopefully there will be a lot more to come, with Ishmael surely cracking the 22-second barrier this year."
Keep an eye on this blog for further updates from the US, where Trackspeed1-UK will be competing too, in two track meetings later this month.
