TRINIDAD AND Tobago sprint queen Michelle-Lee Ahye is setting her sights on the IAAF World Championships this year, which is set to take in London, England from August 4-13.

During a recent interview, Ahye said, "honestly I'm looking forward to the World Championships. Even though the trials (National Championships) would be a big thing this year because everybody would be coming back healthy and strong, I'm more focusing on the World Championships."

The 24-year-old Ahye had a commendable 2016 season, finishing sixth in both the women's 100 metres in 10.92 seconds and 200m in 22.34. "It was a fantastic year for me," was how she described her 2016 season. "I made it to the finals in the Olympics and it was a big achievement."

With regards to her current physical state, Ahye said, "I had a late off-season due to a minor surgery I had, but I'm getting back in shape and I'm getting back there." Asked about the nature of the surgery, Ahye replied, "I had a bunion issue on my left big toe but it's taken care of now."
