    Eddie Osei-Nketia has done some number crunching and set some quick targets for the year ahead


    The sprinter has a personal best 100 metre time of 10.19 seconds, which is 0.08 seconds shy of his father Gus' national record.

    Osei-Nketia says his main goal is to achieve a really fast time.
