Injured Marvin Anderson will be ready next week

By Gary Smith, World-Track

The dark clouds circling around the uncertainty of Marvin Anderson’s fitness for the Aviva London Grand Prix at the end of this month seems to passing on, with managements optimistic he will be ready for the meeting.

Anderson pulled out of the 200m at the Lausanne Grand Prix last week after 120m in the race with what seemed to have been a hamstring injury, which cast doubts over his participation at the London event and even the World Championships next month.

However, an agent close to members of the Racers Track Club in which the Jamaican belongs, confirmed on Tuesday that the sprinter should be ok to race again as early as next week.

The news menat that Anderson would be able to join world record holder Usain Bolt and the islands’ newest young star Yohan Blake, who became another sub-10 seconds Jamaican with a huge personal best of 9.96sec at the Gala in Rome last Firday on a Jamaican 4x100m relay team expecting to go very fast.

"We already hold the fastest time in the world this year and hope to go faster in Crystal Palace," a confident Bolt said.

Meanwhile, bolt will continue to sharpen up his form for the worlds in Berlin when he also lines up in the 100m dash at the meeting.

The race will be his second on the trot as he also will be running that same event at the IAAF Golden League competition in Paris on Friday.

Bolt’s arch rival, American Tyson Gay, who is the reigning world sprint double champion and world leader in both events, will race over 100m in London.

It was believed that the pair would have made their first clash before the Berlin at the meeting, but with then racing in separate events the head-on will not mature.
