LONDON - If you want to see Bradley Ally tomorrow morning, you need to be up and in front of your television by 5 o’clock.
Ally will be the first Barbadian in action at the London 2012 Olympic Games, splashing off in the very first event, the men’s 400 metres individual medley at the Aquatic Centre here in Olympic Park.
Ally, 25, will swim in the first heat and is drawn in lane five. There are five heats.
He has a qualifying time of 4 minutes 24.06 seconds, but his fastest time is at least ten seconds quicker.
Ally will not march in the Opening Ceremony tonight, because of his early start, and will be watching on television like many Barbadians.
