Cains Trains in US

US-based Caines targets comeback
Daniel Caines is targeting a successful 2006 after moving to America to train with coach Jeff Howser.
The 26-year-old had been coached by his father Joe in Birmingham but is now working with Howser alongside world 400m hurdles champion Bershawn Jackson.

“I am happy with my coach and training group and I’ve really enjoyed the first phase of training,” said Caines, a former world indoor 400m champion.

“I’m looking forward to competing injury-free in a successful season.”

Caines broke onto the world stage four years ago but has been plagued by knee injuries.

Last season he only raced twice, coming home in fifth place on his comeback at the Glasgow International in June.

Caines now aims to challenge world 400m finalist Tim Benjamin for the British number one spot.

Caines, who moved to North Carolina in September, is targeting a return at the Norwich Union International in Glasgow on 28 January.

He will then compete in his hometown in the Birmingham Grand Prix on 18 February.
