Osei-Nketia says no to rugby and will stay on the track

Osei-Nketia, 20, entertained switching sports after failing to better the New Zealand 100m record held by his dad, Gus Nketia, and secure selection for the Tokyo Olympics.

But his coach Gary Henley-Smith says Osei-Nketia will be on the track, not the rugby field this summer.

"Eddie is determined to run even faster this year," Henley-Smith said.

"I think he's pretty motivated to try and get his dad's record and also try and qualify for the world champs as well as the Commonwealth Games."
