YOUTH Olympics 2014 gold medalist Sydney Siame says he has started training for next year’s world championship as he aims for another gold.

In an interview, Siame, who recently graduated from Zambia Police, said there was nothing to distract him next year.

“I am training hard so that I can qualify to the World Championships early enough next year. My aim is to win gold next year. I have nothing to distract me since I have graduated,” Siame said.

The Zambia Police sprinter said he was happy with the support he was receiving from the high command and was aiming high to improve his personal best times both in the 100 and 200 metres.

“I have received massive support from the high command and the club. I really want to do my best to repay them for their support,” said Siame who made history when he became the first Zambian to win gold in the 100 metres at the Youth Olympics in Nanjing, China two years ago.

However, his form dwindled which he attributed to his training as a police officer.
