Australian Patrick Johnson wins 100m in Japan

29 April 2008

Australian sprinter Patrick Johnson has won the 100m at a track and field meet in Hiroshima, Japan.

Johnson’s winning time of 10.18 seconds was under the Olympic A qualifying standard.

But it will not officially boost his chances of being added to the Beijing Olympic Games team as the race was run with the benefit of an illegal 2.7m tailwind.

Johnson, the national 100m record holder, is midway through the appeals process after being left out of the initial Australian Games squad named in early March.

He has lodged the appeals paperwork with the Court of Arbitration for Sport but has asked that his case by held over until the final Olympic squad is announced by Athletics Australia on June 23.

Johnson will be contesting his favoured 200m event in two further GP meets in Japan on Saturday and on May 10.
