Gemili secures personal best

BRITISH sprint sensation Adam Gemili again underlined his exceptional potential by last night recording 10.05seconds when winning the World Junior Championships 100m in Barcelona.

The time was a personal best in the young sprinter’s promising career and edged him 0.12secs ahead of the United States’ Aaron Ernest and 0.23secs in front of Jamaica’s Odean Skeen.

“It’s a massive stepping stone,” said Gemili, who was once a footballer on the books of Chelsea, Reading and Dagenham and Redbridge but has been selected by Team GB for the 100m and 4x100m at London 2012. “Just making the final was an achievement but the fact I won is so amazing. It’s going to help me a lot at the Olympics.

“All I know is that I feel good and I feel there is a lot more to come.”
