PARIS (FRA): French sprinting star Christophe Lemaitre confirmed that he will try to run both events in the coming season with equal intensity, whether it will be 100 m or 200 m. His goal is to target the podium at both events at World Championships in London. Informs Le Parisien. After training camp in Reunion he plans to run at IAAF World Relays in Bahamas and then French Interclubs, French Championships, European Team Championships in Lille and Diamond League meetings in-between.

RunBlogRun opines: Christophe Lemaitre took the bronze in the 200 meters in Rio. One of the things that I like about Lemaitre is that he is slowly developing and his coach is quite old school. The attention to detail, the daily reminders that you are, as an elite sprinter, actually training for a marathon (long term), not a sprint (short term) is part of the focus. Watch the young Frenchman this season.
