A month after anchoring home European gold for Team GB's 4 by 100m relay squad Harry Aikines-Aryeetey returned to Berlin Olympic Stadium last Sunday and missed out on a podium spot, writes Ziad Chaudry.

The 29-year-old Sutton & District AC sprint ace clocked 10.25secs in men's 100m at 

ISTAF IAAF World Challenge event in the German capital.

Jamaica's Tyquendo Tracey triumphed in 10.05, Alonso Edward of Panama second in 10.08 and American Isiah Young third in 10.15.

"It's always nice to come back to the track where you've had a lot of success," said Aikines-Aryeetey. "It's always nice feelings, different emotions. 

"Fourth today, I can't really complain. Been working on a few new bits but at the same time I'm pretty tired. It's been one of those seasons where I felt I've been a tenth off everything. Planning been a little bit off due to Commonwealths but again we just to accept what's happened and what it is, trying new things, looking at about development at different ways and trying to move forward."

Aikines-Aryeetey closes out his season at the Great North CityGames this Saturday but is looking forward to next year.

"I'm definitely positive for next season," He added. "I'm always a positive guy but I'm only going to put myself in the scenario that I can proceed in and look forward to next season."
