Dasaolu ready for World Indoors

British sprinter James Dasaolu will compete at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Portland this Friday (18 March).

The European 100m Champion will race in the 60m event starting at 9.20pm British time. The semi final is due to start at 1.00am whilst the final takes place at 3.40am BST.

“I’m happy for this great opportunity to represent my country,” said James. “I’m really looking forward to it. It’s great to test myself in competitive action and see where I am at after a winter of preparation.”

“It’s important to gage where I am physically and to know what I need to work on going into the outdoor season with the Olympic Games in Rio on the horizon.”

James heads to America as the British Indoor Champion after securing the title in Sheffield two weeks ago.
