That’s what my team keeps telling me… I’ve got to prove myself once more.“My last race was 9.95, which shows I’m going in the right direction. The two rounds (of heats and semi-finals) always help me. I’m always going forward.“At a championships it’s about who keeps their nerve. I’ve been here before. It’s time to go. It’s ‘go’ time.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
