Fit-again Gardener back to form

30 January 2007

Reigning European 60m champion Jason Gardener returned to form on Tuesday with two fast times in Vienna.

Gardener clocked 6.58 seconds in winning his heat - the joint third fastest time in the world this year - before winning his final in 6.62 secs.

His form dispelled any doubts raised by his loss to training parter Craig Pickering in Glasgow last Saturday.

"I shouldn't have competed there, I'd had flu and badly needed a race," said Gardener. "This was more like me."

Gardner will be going for a fourth successive European indoor gold at this year's championships, which take place in Birmingham from 2-4 March.

His preparation for that continues in Stuttgart on Saturday where he has a rematch with training partner Pickering and also faces Francis Obikwelu, last summer's European 100m and 200m outdoor gold medallist.
