Ron looks ahead

Olympic hurdler Ronald Forbes hopes that his injury woes will not hamper his progress towards the London Olympics in 2012.

Forbes has been training with a group of High Performance athletes in Orlando but injury curtailed his season.

A repeat of a left hamstring pull has ruled him out for the rest of the year and the North Side sprinter will not be lining up at the World Championships that start in Berlin on August 15.

So now he is resigned to coming back for 2010 for the Commonwealth Games and next year’s world indoor championships.

Forbes, 24, has decided to switch back to his old coach at Florida International University, Eric Campbell, leaving behind Brooks Johnson who gave Forbes his blessing.

‘I think going back to Eric is a better career move. Looking at the facts that whatever took me to Beijing was working last year. I’ve still learnt a whole lot from Brooks who has 50 years of track and field experience in him.

‘He’s had guys on the Olympic team since 1968. He even advised me to go back to Eric and said he would still give me tips if I wanted any.’

So it looks like only Cydonie Mothersill will be representing Cayman in Berlin.
