Top Bajan sprinters Ramon Gittens and Mario Burke won’t just be doing the 4×100 metres relay now, as they’ve been added to the men’s 100 metres field at next week’s IAAF World Championships in London.

Athletics Association of Barbados (AAB) vice president Noel Lynch confirmed the news after the IAAF extended an invitation to the two to contest the marquee event.
