ABOUT Alonso Edward

Alonso has been dubbed the worlds newest sprint sensation which in an era of such remarkable sprinters is high praise indeed!

The 19-year-olds 2009 World Championship run of 19.81 set new track standards. It was the fastest ever by a South American and he became the youngest to pick up a World Championship 200m medal. But perhaps most significantly his time was a world age-19 best, outstripping the 19.88sec set by……Usain Bolt!

2010 is all about capitalising on his status as one of the worlds fastest men and most exciting sprint talents. He will be competing around the world and striving for continued improvements in his already outstanding performances.
