DANNY Talbot has unfinished business at the Olympic Stadium in London next week.

The Trowbridge Tornado will line up for the heats of the 200m at the World Championships determined to banish the memories of that fateful days five years ago when he was a member of the GB 4x100m team that was disqualified when Talbot and Adam Gemili messed up the final hand-over.

The disqualification was incredibly frustrating for Talbot as it was his only chance to impress having failed to qualify for the individual 200m.

He vowed then never to make that mistake again and he has subsequently qualified for the major championships every year including two European Championships, the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the World Championships in Beijing two years and then last year his best to date reaching the semi finals of the 200m at the Olympics in Rio.

Every season he has improved his personal best, including this summer as he clocked a legal 20.20 seconds to finish runner-up in the British Championships and also a stunning 19.86 in Florida, which was aided by a following wind of 2.8mps.

But Talbot firmly believes the best is yet to come this summer – and can’t wait to get back onto the Olympic track to show the British public what he can really do.

“I have been training really well and everything has been geared towards London and being at my peak for the World Championships,” said Talbot.

“I know I can go faster at the World Championships. I know that the personal best I did at the trials won’t be my last PB of the season. This season is going exactly how I wanted it to.”

Talbot knows only too well that on the world stage he has been on the cusp of taking that last, decisive stride to join the very best in the end game, to elevate himself from strong semi finalist into a contender for the final itself.

“I feel this year the 200m will be very different,” added Talbot.

“There is no Usain Bolt for one thing and I don’t think there is a clear favourite for gold.

“There are a lot of sprinters running between 20.1/20.2secs, including myself and whoever can do that and raise their performance will be in contention for a medal.

“My expectation is to make the final and then who knows what will happen but I am really looking forward to the event now and can’t wait for the action to start.”
