Hercules Wimbledon sprint coach Paul Miller reckons they are fast becoming the biggest name over the short track.

Following an outstanding performance from sprinter Theo Etienne at last weekend's Jyvaskyla Indoor Games in Finland, the 19-year-old is now the top ranked U23 sprinter over 60m this year, and only two other British athletes have run faster.

Also sprinting pretty at the top of their age group 60m rankings are clubmates Rechmial Miller (U20), Jaleel Roper (U15) and Zipporah Golding (U13).

In Finland, Etienne won his heat in a personal best of 6.68 seconds, three-hundredths of a second faster than what Olympic sprinter Warren Fraser from the Bahamas clocked in taking his heat.

In the final, Etienne was just pipped by Fraser, sharing the winning time of 6.60secs - and he now has a chance of representing Great Britain at the World Indoor Championships in Oregon next month.

Miller, who won a hat-trick of Surrey senior men 100m titles in the 1980s, said: "When it comes to sprinting, Hercules Wimbledon is very firmly on the map.

"Not only do we have two internationals in Theo and Rechmial, but we have youngsters coming through led by Jaleel and Zipporah.

"All four top their age groups this year and there is no other club with this spread of top class talent.”

Rechmial Miller is Britain’s fastest U20 60m sprinter this year after clocking 6.77secs at Lee Valley in January.

Miller, who got silver and bronze in last year’s Commonwealth Youth Games and IAAF World Youth Championships, respectively, is a strong contender for the IAAF World Junior Championships being held in Kazan, Russia, in July.

Following their outstanding performances, both sprinters have been invited to compete in the British Senior Indoor Championships, held in Sheffield at the end of this month.

Roper clocked 7.22secs in winning the South of England indoor title at Lee Valley last month to top the U15 ranks, while Golding ran 8.34secs in the London Indoor Games, the fastest time by an U13 girl this year.

Supporting these top ranked efforts is Chad Miller, 15, who placed ninth in the country over 400m in the U17s with his 51.56secs silver medal-winning performance in the South of England Championships at Lee Valley.

This weekend, Roper and the Miller brothers are chasing national titles and medals in the England age group indoor championships at Sheffield.
