Former Thurrock FC star stakes claim for Olympic 100m place

IT WAS a stunning display of 100 metre sprinting by Adam Gemili at a meet in Germany that could see him line up against Usain Bolt at the London 2012 Olympics.

Gemili was playing for Thurrock FC in the Conference South for most of the season but left to concentrate on athletics.

It looks like he made the right decision as he ran 10.11 and then 10.08 at the meet.

That puts him second in the european rankings.
