In the running for Olympics

ERINA runner Matt Lynch showed again he is right on track to compete at this year’s London Olympics with one of the most telling performances of his career at the weekend.

Lynch, 26, continued his outstanding start to the season with a second placing behind Commonwealth Games gold medallist Ben Offereins in the 400m at the Adelaide Track Classic.

Originally Lynch was not invited to compete at the event but was given a late call-up after running a sub-47 second race at the Hunter Track Classic last week.

In that race Lynch defended his 2011 title and set a personal best time of 46.45 seconds.

The good times continued in Adelaide when Lynch finished just behind Offereins in 46.48.

Lynch led the race with only 50m remaining.

“I feel like I made the most of the call-up,” Lynch said. “If I didn’t get the call, I was going to compete at the NSW Country titles so either way I was running.

“I’m just glad I went to Adelaide. That race has given me a lot of confidence.”

Lynch and training partner Kevin Moore, who also impressed with a fourth placing in Adelaide, are chasing berths in the 4 x 400m Australian relay team for the London Games that start in July.

Both will aim to impress in Perth on February 11 before another hit-out in Sydney on February 18.

Then the pressure will be on when the Olympic trials start in Melbourne on March 1.
