The annual pre-season training camp in Florida, USA, has seen Trackspeed1-UK athletes flying out of the blocks in their first couple of sessions, while back in the UK there has already been a personal best set on the opening day on the season!

Working out at their usual training base, the National Triathlon Training Center, in Clermont, Central Florida, early indications are that there could be some impressive performances this year.

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.
