Alex Wilson to miss Tokyo 2020

Sensational sprinting at the Georgia Games in Georgia, USA, by Swiss sprinter Alex Wilson recorded stunning times in the 100m and 200m. 

He clocked 9.84 (+1.9m/s wind) in the 100m, which is better than the current European record.  In the 200 m, his time was 19.89 (+1.8m/s wind) what would be a new Swiss record. 

The conditions were ideal per reports in Swiss media, with 30 degrees and favourable wind. 

Alex Wilson switches focus to Tokyo 2020

On Monday, Wilson flies back to Switzerland and then later to Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. He is scheduled to run both 100m and 200m. 

It remains to see whether European Athletics will ratify the mark.
