Adam Gemili

Adam Gemili claims he was forced to run at the British trials while injured, as he unsuccessfully tried to secure a 200m place for the World Championships.

Gemili, who was just three thousandths of a second outside the medals at Rio 2016, was hampered by a hamstring problem as he came sixth in Birmingham.

“I didn’t want to race, but the powers-that-be said if I wanted to make the team I had to,” said the 23-year-old, who will be part of the 4x100m squad.
