American sprinter Me'Lisa Barber, the recently crowned World Indoors 60 metres champion in Moscow, Russia, has her sights set on producing fast times this season.

"My goals for this season are to stay injury free and to run under 11 seconds in the 100m and run 22.20 and below in the 200m," said Barber who snatched the women's 60m title in Moscow ahead of World 100m champion and fellow American Lauryn Williams.

Barber will open her outdoor campaign in the women's 100 meter dash at the Golden Spike meeting in Ostrava, Czech Republic, on on May 30 and she's aiming to become only the second woman to dip under 11-seconds on Czech Republic soil.

"I feel as those these goals are very attainable as long as I stay positive and healthy," said the American who holds personal bests are 11.04sec and 22.37sec in the sprints.

"I am very excited and look forward to competing in Ostrava. I know there will be great competition and hopefully great weather."

The woman under 11-seconds barrier was East German sprinter Marlies Gohr, who clocked 10.95 in Prague in 1984. Ivet Lalova of Bulgaria whose personal best is a stunning 10.77 won the event last year in 11.03 in cold conditions for sprinting.

The meeting in Ostrava is the only eastern European stop on the IAAF World Athletics Tour series.
