Going for it: James Dasaolu is targeting a medal at next month’s European Indoor Championships

First published in Sport by

James Dasaolu has his sights firmly set on a medal at next month’s European Indoor Championships after claiming the UK 60m title last Saturday at EIS, Sheffield.

The in-form 25-year-old 2012 Team GB Olympic Games representative from Croydon booked his ticket to Gothenburg, Sweden after edging out nearest challenger Sutton’s Harry Aikines-Ayreetey to post a lifetime best time of 6.58secs, his third victory in four indoor appearances this season:

He said: “I’m really pleased to book my place for Gothenburg.

“I was a bit worried after my semi-final when I didn’t get a good start but I knew that as long as I got my start right I’d have a really good chance and to get a new PB as well, so I’m happy.

"I want to get a medal at the European Indoor Championships, obviously I’m going to have to go on the lower side of 6.50secs but that’s my goal.”
