RASHEED DWYER stormed to a second-place finish at the Zurich Diamond League meeting and told The Gleaner his 2015 season had been 'tremendous'.

The 200m race was won by Panama's Alonso Edward, who also won the series, but Dwyer admitted that had he run more 200m races the result may have been different.

The 26-year-old said: "It was a good execution. I came off the corner and tried to hold my form, but I haven't run a 200m for a while, so I am a bit rusty, but other races will be much better."

GOODSEASON

He added: "My season has gone well. I am running 19.80 so it has been a tremendous season so far. I'm not going to set any goals or targets for next season, I am just going to continue to work hard, go back to the drawing board and take it from there."

In stark contrast to the fortunes of Dwyer, fellow Jamaican Nickel Ashmeade said 2015 had been his worst year ever.

"The race was okay, I am bit tired from the rounds in Beijing, but it's okay," said the 25-year-old who finished in fourth.

He added: "It's been the worst season ever. I had injuries since the early part of the year and I am still struggling with it. I am just trying to get through and prepare for next year. I am going into rehab then start my training for next season a little earlier so I can be ready."
