FOLLOWING his first come back race from injury last week, Zharnel Hughes of the High Performance Centre will be in action again this time in the 100m at the third Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) All Comers Development Meet which takes place today at the National Stadium starting at 5:00 pm.

Hughes, who got injured after smashing Yohan Blake's 100m Class One record at Champs, clocked a relaxed 20.79 seconds in the 200m last week and his coach Patrick Dawson was pleased.

"He basically ran to my instructions. He didn't run the curve hard and I am pleased with the 20.79 clocking. I just wanted to see where he's at and he will be ready for the World Juniors," said Dawson.

As usual, not much is known of the athletes taking part in this evening's meet, and especially with the core of the local-based runners away in The Bahamas for the World Relays, attention will be focused on the juniors preparing for the World Junior Championship in Oregon, USA between July 22-27.

Calabar High's Michael O'Hara is also scheduled to run in the 100m, while Javon Francis should make a return to action as well, probably in the 400m.
