“My doctor finally passed me after my hamstring problems at the world championships, so now I can start training. I’ve started training while I’m here (Australia) and trying to get into shape before I get home and next year I’ll get a trial and we’ll take it from there,”
“When I put my mind to something, I’m going to do it. I’m going to train hard, put myself through some drills. Coach of the team in Jamaica – I’ll do some work with him also to figure out the finer details.” he added.
