Salone athletes end final training in Hastings

Salone athletes end final training in Hastings thumbnail

The two Sierra Leonean athletes that will be representing the country in this year’s Olympic Games in London have ended a week long training in Hastings ahead of the games on Tuesday July 17th before moving to the games village.   (Photo: l-r The two Sierra Leone Olympic athletes Ibrahim Turay, Ola Seay, and Coach Abu White after their final training)

According to the coach, Abu Kamara (aka Abu White), who accompanied the team  he said both athletes Ola Sesay and Ibrahim Turay appear confident of what lies ahead of them as the past couple of days they have been working hard to see how they will improve on their time, especially Ibrahim Turay who will be competing in the 200m.

Even thought they are faced with difficult climatic conditions the coach Abu Kamara said they are on top of the situation for now and he hopes to improve on the time of Ibrahim Turay who is expected to participate next month on the 5th 2012.

In another relating development Yohan Blake insists his friendship with fellow Jamaican, training partner and sprint rival Usain Bolt will survive whatever happens at London 2012. Blake confirmed he will be the main threat to Bolt’s 100m and 200m crowns when he beats the Olympic champion over both distances at the Jamaican trials.

“Win, lose, or draw we are friends, even though it is business and he wants to win and I want to win,” said Blake.

The men’s 100m and 200m finals are on 5 and 9 August respectively.

Blake’s performances in Kingston at the end of June delivered world-leading times in both events and established his credentials as a potential successor rather than just leading bridesmaid to Bolt in London.

Blake is the reigning world champion over 100m after winning in Daegu in 2011 in 9.92 seconds, although that victory was achieved after world record-holder Bolt was disqualified for a false start in the final.

Six days later Bolt stormed to victory in the 200m to underline his status as favourite for both sprint titles in London.

Blake believes that his decision to leave his school coach in October 2008 and join Bolt under coach Glen Mills at the Racers Track Club in Kingston has helped him chip away at that aura of invincibility ever since.
