Adam Gemili's coach says it is 50-50 whether the young sprinter will compete at the London Olympics. The 18 year-old has qualified for the British team but Michael Afilaka has to decide whether it would suit Adam to run at Stratford. A decision is expected later this week.
Dwain Chambers was relieved to win the 100m at the UK Olympic trials yesterday. It means he will definitely be included in the GB team if he can achieve the qualifying time of 10.18 seconds. Chambers has missed the last two Olympics after being banned for drug-taking.
18 year-old sprinter Adam Gemili has qualified for the British Olympic team after coming second in yesterday's 100m final at the UK trials.
Sorry I can't be at the trials today guys! I need to rest as much a possible and save my legs to defend my European title next week..!!
Mo Farah has pulled out of tonight's 1500m final at the UK Athletics Trials. The world champion has decided it would be better to concentrate on the 5000m event at the European Championships in Helsinki next week.
Dwain Chambers says he's hoping the pressure of trying to secure an Olympic place will bring out the best in him at the trials in Birmingham. He's ranked just eighth in Britain and hasn't yet recorded an Olympic 'A' standard qualifying time of 10.18 seconds that would win him a place in London.
But the 34-year-old, who was cleared to compete in the Olympics earlier this year when the British Olympic Association's lifetime ban on drugs cheats was overturned, is aiming to come good when it comes to the crunch at the Alexander Stadium.
"I want to run fast but I'll just have to do the best I can with the resources I've got and just go for it," Chambers said.
Teenager Jodie Williams wins her heat in 100m with a time of 11.70 at the Olympic trials. Not bad having just finished her A-levels on Wednesday.

It was good. I’ve been out all season, I’ve had exams and I’ve had quite a few problems this season.
That was my first race of the season so I’m happy with it, I’ve just got to build myself up.
I’m going to come back, a win is a win. 11.7 is OK to open up with so I’m just hoping to cut down the time and perform the best I can.
