Commonwealth Games 400m bronze medalist Javon Francis is assuring his supporters that his inconsistent form this season is no reason to worry as his training has been designed for him to run fast when it matters most.

Francis was speaking with SportsMax.TV on Tuesday at the launch on Tuesday of the JAAA/SVL National Junior and Senior Championships scheduled for June 21-24.

With the Commonwealth Games being in April, the 23-year-old Francis, known as the “Transporter” had to peak early to win the bronze medal in a time of 45.11. However, since then Francis has been inconsistent. He clocked 46.06 at the Cayman Invitational on June 2 and then 45.42 at the Racers Grand Prix on June 9.

Francis explained to SportsMax.TV that the results seen so far is also because his training has been designed for him to be at his best for the latter part of the season.

“My running has been unpredictable, 46/45, my coach has been loading me up for a peak. Normally, I wouldn’t run so fast early in the season, I would run fast later down. After trials I want to rebound and see what I can under 44 or so,” he said. “I feel I can do it. I just need to believe in myself.”

Francis said his main focus this season will be the CAC Games in Colombia and the NACAC Championships in Toronto Canada and then a few Diamond League races to close off the season.
