    Eddie Osei-Nketia's coach feels positive he'll qualify for Tokyo Olympics

    Eddie Osei-Nketia's coach feels his protege's a possibility to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics next weekend at the Australian national championships in Sydney


    The 19-year-old's personal best in the 100 metres, which he ran last month, is 10.12 seconds - 0.07 seconds outside the qualifying standard.

    The national record, which his dad Gus holds, is 10.11.

    His mentor Gary Henley-Smith outlines what needs to happen.
