Cydonie runs

Cayman’s Cydonie Mothersill goes into action tomorrow at the world championships in Berlin.

Mothersill runs in the 200 metres heats and hopes to emulate her form of last year when she reached the final at the Olympic Games in Beijing.

Like last year, her build up to these championships have not been smooth because of injury.

‘What sort of shape am I in, I’m healthy,’ she said. ‘I’m ready to go out and compete. Nothing matters from before, it’s all about what’s done here in Berlin.

‘My build up hasn’t been as smooth as I would have liked it to be but life isn’t smooth so I’m ready to compete.

‘Can I get amongst the medals? Well that’s my intention, I will do what I always do – compete to my fullest.’

Cayman’s other competitor at the championships, Kemar Hyman, was in the men’s 100m. He went out in the first round, coming fourth in a heat won by eventual silver medallist Tyson Gay.

Hyman’s time was 10.59 seconds, a lot slower than the 10.26 he ran to qualify for the trip but at least he gleaned some experience from it.
