Jermaine Brown is working his way back to maximum fitness level, ahead of the Jamaica Championships in June 25-28.

Brown, who was a member of Jamaica’s World Record 4x200m team at the 2014 World Relays in Bahamas, said he has not been at his best lately.

“Being hurt for about a month now, you see me compete, I’m just getting back,” he said.

Brown is here in Ponce, Puerto Rico for Saturday’s (23 May) IAAF Grand Prix meeting where he will run the men’s 100m.

“Running the 100m is to get back my fitness with one month away from Jamaica trials,” he said while adding “I haven’t decided if I am going to run the 200m or 400m yet.”

The men’s 100m event will have favourite Keston Bledman of Trinidad & Tobago running out of lane 5. Antoine Adams of St. Kitts and Nevis will run from lane 3, Brown lane 6 and Adam Harris of Guyana lane 4.

The Americans to watch are Maurice Mitchell and Harry Adams.

“This weekend is just to test the leg and see how healthy it is over the 100m,” added the former Calabar and Bridgeport High student.
