RJR News / Olympic 110 metre hurdles champion Omar McLeod says he would compete in the men’s sprint relay at the World Championships in London if given the opportunity.
McLeod has a personal best of 9.99 seconds from 2016 and a wind-assisted 10.16 this season but has said he won’t contest the event for the remainder of the season. However, a relay leg is something the 23 year old would not pass up in London.
“The first goal is to go there as a hurdler and then hopefully the Jamaican authorities will see my talent and if they call me I’ll gladly do it but for now I know I’m going there to do the 110 hurdles,” said McLeod.
McLeod, Hansle Parchment and Ronald Levy will all contest the men’s 110m hurdles at the Diamond League meet in Paris on Saturday.
A total of 10 Jamaicans are down to be in action in Paris including double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson who will be joined in the 100 metres by Christania Williams.
World and Olympic bronze medallist Shericka Jackson, Novlene Williams-Mills and Stephenie-Ann McPherson will contest the women’s 400 metres. Julian Forte will compete in the men’s 100 metres and Rasheed Dwyer the 200 metres.
