Sprinter McCabe takes on Jamaica, then world

TOWNSVILLE Olympian Andrew McCabe will travel to Jamaica next month to learn from one of the world's best coaches as he looks to build on his breakthrough 2012.

McCabe will spend two weeks training under Jamaican national head coach Maurice Wilson as he begins his bid for next year's World Athletics Championships in Moscow.

Wilson was in charge as the Jamaican athletics team - featuring stars Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce - won 10 sprint medals at the London Olympics.

McCabe enjoyed a breakout year in 2012, winning the 200m at the Olympic trials and earning himself a spot in the 4x100m relay team, which finished seventh in the final.

He moved to Townsville after the games to be closer to dual-Olympian coach Paul Di Bella, and to focus more on his training.

Di Bella said the Jamaica trip, between January 13 and 30, would be a good opportunity for McCabe to expose himself to different training methods from one of the most successful sprinting nations in the world.

"I think it'll be good and will motivate and inspire him and show what other people are doing," he said.

The 22-year-old will start his domestic campaign in early February before racing every weekend in March and April.

Di Bella said McCabe was looking to put in a good showing at the national championships in Sydney in April, which would help him secure an individual world championships berth. "He wants to run well at the nationals, achieve the A standards in both the 100m and 200m, and run as an individual sprinter at the world championships," Di Bella said.

The Jamaica trip was organised by McCabe's manager, Hayden Knowles, who expected the athlete to be like a "sponge" and soak up as much information as possible.
