'Richard Kilty wants to show he deserves a place in the World Indoors 60m... the Teesside sprinter beat French duo Christophe Lemaitre and Jimmy Vicaut, and American Mike Rodgers last Saturday, all of whom have broken the 10-second barrier over 100 metres."I think I can run sub 6.50. I was a little fatigued in Birmingham on Saturday having raced three hard rounds in the UK trials the weekend before."There are little things to improve on technically in terms of being a little tense, and leaning for the line a little too early."If I can run that perfect race, there's so many guys within a couple of hundredths that I think I can go to Poland and win."But that's the case for a lot of athletes. My first target is make the final as then anything can happen."'

Well he was right
Before the World Indoor Athletics Championships Richard Kilty said what he could achieve...
In Poland he did indeed make the final, break 6.50 in the final (running 6.49) & so win gold by hundredths of a second. Well done Richard Kilty.
