Lemaitre hoping to be the Olympics' sprint masterReported by France 24 on Thursday, 19 July 2012 (on July 19, 2012)
Frenchman Christophe Lemaitre is hoping he can gatecrash the expected Jamaican and American hold over the sprints at the Olympics - so long as he doesn't go to sleep in the blocks!
The 22-year-old two-time European 100 metres champion and 2010 200m victor has yet to decide whether he will compete in both sprint distances or focus solely on the 200m.
However, he gave a pretty clear hint after running the third fastest time of the year in the event of 19.91 in the 200m at last weekend's London Diamond League meet.
"Normally I will run the 200m, yes," said Lemaitre.
