KINGSTON, Jamaica – Jamaican sprinter Michael Frater has reiterated that he has not retired from track and field.

The 31-year-old Frater made the comment a few days before the Jamaican Athletics Trials.

 “I have not retired, definitely not.  I have much more to give, said Frater who is also the 3rd vice president of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA).

Frater said he has plans to compete at the World Championships next year in China and also the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.

Frater has not competed since the 2014 Penn Relays in the USA in April.

Frater, a two-time Olympic Games 4x100m relay gold medallist, said “I felt very good competing at the Penn Relays, but I had another injury setback but I am taking it in strides.”

He was also a member of Jamaica’s team to the inaugural IAAF World Relays in the Bahamas in May, but did not take the track.

Frater, who won silver in the men's 100m at the 2005 World Championships, is now a member of the Racers Track Club, the home of the world’s fastest man Usian Bolt.
