Jamaica sprinter plans triumphant return
KINGSTON, Jamaica, Friday January 11, 2013 - Olympic and world 100 metre silver medallist, Jamaica’s Kerron Stewart, says she is planning a comeback to the fast times which brought her international acclaim in recent years.
Stewart says she is eager to make a triumphant return to the tracks when she competes in this summer's World Athletics Championships in Moscow.
The 2008 Olympic and 2009 World 100 metre silver medallist has been facing criticism for her dip in form.
"I honestly want to give God my best, so if giving my best comes with the gold medal or no medal at all, then I'll be fine” Stewart told the Observer.
“But the aim is always to perform at my best and to win, and that's why I train so hard”.
The fast-finishing sprint star had a stellar 2008, speeding to 10.80s, followed by twice clocking whirlwind times of 10.75s in 2009.
However she struggled last year and could only manage a season's best of 10.94.
"There are stuff (that affected me), but I'm not looking for excuses. I still have a lot inside of me and that's what I'm focusing on," said the 28-year-old athlete.
“I don't want to go in the past and (talk about) what has hindered me. I just want to move forward and... use that (experience) to push me”.
