KINGSTON, Jamaica — Jamaican high school star Michael O'Hara has left the Racers Track Club and has returned to Calabar High School as he tries to reignite his career.

O'Hara who struck gold in the 200 metre at the IAAF World Youth Championship in 2013 and left Champs in a blaze of glory capturing the 100m, 200m and 110m hurdles titles in 2015, was seen as one that would keep Jamaica's athletics flag flying high.

However, has been struggling with injuries and only made a return to the track in 2018, slowly returning to the kind of form to which fans are accustomed.

“We just started training, but so far the programme is amazing and the atmosphere is amazing,” said an excited O'Hara, who will be under the guidance of Calabar track coach Craig Sewell.

“We're doing strength training and speed endurance now, it feels like home working with Sewell,” he added.

More to come.
