Olympic relay gold medallist Marlon Devonish qualified to run the 200 metres for the the World Championships on Monday night and reiterated his desire to run both sprint distances in Helsinki.
Competing at a meeting in the Swedish town of Karlstad, the Coventry Godiva sprinter achieved the A standard for next month's championships when he finished second, behind World Indoor silver medallist Johan Wissman, in 20.55 seconds.
That gave him a good enough time to guarantee his place in Finland and erased the disappointment of having the 20.5 secs he ran at the Loughborough European Athletics Permit Meeting on Saturday, chalked off because it was hand-timed.
"I felt jaded after the trials, but I came here to get the time. I'm happy now; I can concentrate on preparing for
the Worlds," Devonish said.
"At the start of the season, my aim was to double up in the 100m and 200m and I hope the selectors will feel I have done enough.
"I'm looking forward to racing at Crystal Palace on Friday night, then I can go to the Worlds all guns blazing," he said.
The line up for the men's 200m at the London Grand Prix includes Devonish, Christian Malcolm, Graham Beasley, Americans John Capel and Wallace Spearmon and Jamaican Usain Bolt. It gives Devonish the chance to gain revenge over Malcolm after the Cardiff athlete took his AAA title from him in Manchester 11 days ago.
Another sprinter who is less certain of his place in London tomorrow is Birchfield Harrier Mark Lewis-Francis who is still recuperating from the effects of a hamstring problem sustained at Sports City.
The 22-year-old pulled up after he came second in the final of the 100m, behind Jason Gardener, and left the track with his left leg heavilystrapped. He has not run since.
Steve Platt, Lewis-Francis' coach, said that they will make a decision on whether he runs in London, later today.
"Mark is alright and is probably 90 per cent fit. While we want him to compete if there is any chance of the injury worsening before the World Championships then we have to be cautious.
"As things stand I know he will be alright for Helsinki but we cannot take chances and have to prioritise.
"Mark definitely wants to run on Friday and he is disappointed that he may not but he understands that Helsinki is his main focus."
The 100m field is a who's who of the planet's fastest men with world record holder Asafa Powell, Olympic gold medal winner Justin Gatlin and three-time world champion Maurice Greene all confirmed as opponents for Gardener.
