G4S 4teen Athlete returns from training with Usain Bolt

and talks to BBC World Service about the experience

G4S 4teen athlete, Obinna Metu, has returned from having ‘the time of his life’ in Jamaica, training with Usain Bolt and his coach Glen Mills.  Officially the fastest man in Nigeria, and one of the G4S 4teen athletes, Obinna was given a unique opportunity to spend the last 2 months training alongside the fastest man in the World and his expert sprint coach.

The charismatic young Nigerian sprinter has risen quickly to the top of his sport, having already competed at both the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2009 IAAF Athletics World Championships, and he is fast becoming a man to take notice of on the international stage.     

Last week Obinna said farewell to his new found friends in Jamaica and headed home to Nigeria with a short stopover in London.   On his way, Obinna made time for a radio interview with Russell Fuller from the BBC World Service programme Sportsworld, and spoke of his amazing experience in the Caribbean courtesy of G4S.  The interview was broadcast on BBC World Service on Saturday 5th February. The BBC World Service interview can be listened to at:
