PAVIA (ITA): Andrew Howe clocked his PB in the 400 meters with an impressive 45.70, which ranks him eleventh in the Italian all-time list. The former European long jump champion has run his first 400 meters race since 2006, when he clocked 46.03 some months before his European long jump title in Gothemburg. The long jump remains his priority but he has planned some sprint races in the early part of the season. “I am confident it will be a great season for me, as in 2006. I can improve my 200 meters PB set in 2004 at the World Junior Championships in Grosseto which I narrowly missed last September in Milan when I clocked 20.30”, said Howe, who trained in Qatar and California at the UCLA University during the winter. If he recovers well, Andrew Howe has not ruled out a 200 meters race next weekend at the Italian Club Championships. He is likely to make his debut in the long jump at the Coppa Italia in Florence (4-5 June). “I am available to run the 4x100 relay for the Italian team,” he also added.
