MVP Track Club coach Stephen Francis, says he is worried about the performance of his athletes for this month's World Championships because of what he calls a disastrous pre-world championships camp in Japan.

The camp was organised by the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) in Tottori.

But according Francis,  the 10-day camp was an "atrocity".

The Japan training camp which started on August 8 ended yesterday. 

A 15-member MVP group was not able to travel to Japan as planned because of difficulties in obtaining their Chinese visas from their European base in Lignano, Italy.
