Re: Zharnel Hughes

This is a difficult situation for the young man. Emotionally of course he wants to run for his homeland, but he can't represent them on the biggest stage of all. All but the most mercenary would be torn in that situation. I fully accept his right to wear the British vest under current rules, but he...

Re: Zharnel Hughes

I think he'll choose Jamaica. Whilst Hughes may have the right to compete for Britain, his links with GB are probably limited. He has more of a connection with Jamaica. I don't care either way, we have enough promising talent in GB right now. Not a chance of that happening...Hughes will follow the ...

Re: Zharnel Hughes

As a native of Anguilla it is my understanding that he already is, or can become at any time a UK citizen. So all arguments against his competing for us are mute. He certainly has no alternative (maybe JAM if his mother is from there) if he ever wants to compete at the Olympics. Just because realit...

Re: Zharnel Hughes

I'M not! Let him represent his own Country, AnGuilla could have a decent little team if the athletes stopped going to Lottery Land! Better still, Britain could always stop holding on to their colonies, like Anguilla and the Falklands, and grant them independence. It's funny how the British are so h...

Zharnel Hughes

This young man won the schoolboy Class One 100m final in 10.12 in Kingston, Jamaica! :shock: He broke Yohan Blake's schoolboy record of 10.21.... Now, as to why this is important for GB athletics.... Well, while the young man is attending Kingston College, he is a native of Anguilla, which is a colo...

I didn't realise that Eurosport was carrying this, until I watched yesterday's afternoon session, and IMHO Eurosport was better.

Ashton - Why is this terrible news? Do you know better than the CAS? What do you know that they don't? Surely it's great news when all of the evidence is examined and an athlete is found not to have cheated? We want cheats caught. We don't want great athletes banned for no good reason A great decis...
