Shaunae Miller-Uibo at Doha Dimond League

Reigning Olympic 400m champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo could forego her 400m title defence in Tokyo next year, to focus on securing the 200m title.

“As it is now, the schedule isn’t set up for me to do two events, so I would have to choose one event, and we’re leaning more toward the 200m seeing that we already have the 400 meters title,” she was quoted by Nassau Guardian saying.

Miller-Uibo continued: “We wanted to do both – I wanted to go after the 200m title and also wanted to defend my 400 meters title, but the way the schedule is set up, it would be difficult to do both. It’s been that way for a few years now.

“When they didn’t change the schedule, we had to make some decisions, and right now, we’re leaning toward the 200. Nothing is finalised as yet, but that’s the way it is right now,” she said.
