KINGSTON, Jamaica – Hansle Parchment is reportedly sweating on his fitness ahead of the start of the JAAA – Jamaica Olympics Senior Trials 2016 – this weekend.

Carrying A Little Problem…

Parchment, the Olympic 110m hurdles bronze medallist from London 2012, made a promising start to his 2016 outdoor season, but it is understood the 26-year-old picked up a slight injury at the end of last month, which has hampered his preparations a bit.

The silver medal winner IAAF World Championships from Beijing, in 2015, is expected to face the starter for the semi-final heats of the sprint hurdles on Saturday, but his status apparently remains less than 100-percent.

The 2011 World University Games Champion picked up a niggle at the Prefontaine Classic on May 28 when finishing last behind countryman Omar McLeod in 13.58 seconds.

It is anticipated that the current national record holder will be conditioned sufficiently to achieve a top three spot at the trials, assuming everything goes according to plan, technically, but Parchment is hoping to punch his ticket to Rio 2016 without too much strain.

World-leader and World Indoor 60m hurdles champion McLeod, the only man below the 13-seconds barrier on the world list this season, will start as the favourite at the National Stadium.

Parchment, with his 13.10 seconds seasonal best, is the third fastest man in 2016, and he has finished behind his fellow countryman in all four head-to-head clashes this campaign.
