Olympic sprinter Wallace Spearmon wants to set a new Drake Relays record next week when he takes part in the special invitational 200. The current Drake record of 20.05 seconds is held by Michael Johnson. Spearmon says he would like to open up at 19.7 seconds in what he calls a soft open to the season.

Spearmon has won at medal in three world championships but this will be his first appearance at Drake. He says this is an off year with no major championships and this is about pride and what you can do as an individual.

The Drake Relays are April 22nd through the 24th.
