“It was definitely the right move for me and training is going really well,” said Stone, pictured left receiving his training shoes as a former winner of DanCossinsthe Easy Runner/Bristol Post athlete of the month competition.

Stone will give the 200m a miss this weekend and focus solely on the 60m as he potentially faces four rounds against a strong line-up of sprinters.
