Anyika Onuora Stays Quiet Over Relay Disqualification

17 July 2012

London 2012 sprint star Anyika Onuora became unwittingly embroiled in a major athletics controversy at the European Championships in Helsinki.

The 100m relay team was disqualified and will not be going to the London Olympics, after Hayley Jones ran out of her lane, leading to the disqualification.

But Onuora, who will be the only member of the relay team in London after qualifying for the individual 200m last week, said: “I do what I do best by staying quiet and keeping it moving. That is all.”
