Wilkins-Gooden among new faces at Racers Track Club

SUSPENDED quarter-miler Bobby-Gaye Wilkins-Gooden is among several new athletes who have started training with the Racers Track and Field Club alongside reigning 100m and 200m world champions Yohan Blake and Usain Bolt.

Wilkins-Gooden, who tested positive for the banned selective androgen receptor modulator Andarine at the 2010 World Indoor Championships in Doha, Qatar, is listed on the club's website as one of 14 new faces who have signed up to work under the tutelage of veteran coach Glen Mills for the 2011/12 season.

The former Holmwood Technical star is currently under a two-year ban which should end in mid-2012.

Also joining the line-up at the University of the West Indies-based Racers this season is former Louisiana State University (LSU) 400m hurdler Nickeisha Wilson.

Wilson, who won gold in the 400m hurdles at the 2010 IAAF Continental Cup in Split, Croatia, and a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India a month later, returned home from the United States a few weeks ago to begin training with Racers.

Former Seaforth High 400m runner Javere Bell, Vere Technical's Deandre Whitehorne and national junior 400m hurdles record holder Ristananna Tracey, who ended their high school careers this season are also on the roster.

Ristananna Tracey made the switch from the University of Technology -- based MVP Track and Field Club as has Andre Wellington.

Wellington is among the other males from UTech, which include Darion Bent, Nicholas Maitland, and Peter Matthews.

Dwight Mullings, the brother of embattled sprinter Steve Mullings, is also in the camp alongside Andre Clarke, Shevon Barnes, Bernardo Brad, and Davion Daye.

Jermaine Shand is now among the club's coaching staff which also includes 1983 400m world champion, Bert Cameron, while Kevin Stewart is the new Administrative Director.
