Think you might want to check the team sheet again!

Hint: Danny Talbot is in the team, Marlon Devonish is not (slightly awkward, given the big budget adverts he's in at the moment)

If you mean the individual - Kilty's best times were in April - he got injured and hasn't ben able to better those marks - but he and Talbot were probably unlucky with their timing, as Talbot seems to be improving still (which is why he needs to run 3rd leg in the relay, but that's another thread...)

Oh - and how is Kilty 2nd in the 100m rankings :?

p.s. Why is this here and not in Current Events?
