G.C. Foster College's Demish Gaye has had a good season so far, the first Jamaican to go sub-45 seconds in the 400 metre this year.

He clocked a personal best of 44.85 seconds in early May at a JAAA All Comers Meet inside the National Stadium.

Since then, he has been surpassed by two other Jamaicans - Nathon Allen (44.52) and Akeem Bloomfield (44.74).

Gaye looked relaxed in winning the one lap event at the Jamaica International Invitational Meet in 45.08 seconds, defeating a decent field.

Come Saturday, he will face his sternest test when he meets the likes of the Trinidad and Tobago duo of Lalonde Gordon and Machel Cedano along with the United States Vernon Norwood and Mike Berry and Jamaican Fitzroy Dunkley.

The very talented Gaye looks set to pass this test with flying colours.

His coach Maurice Wilson thinks he will do something special on Saturday.

"He has so far run 20.48 seconds in 200 metres almost four better than his previous personal best. The expectation based off his training is for him to do very well at the Racers Grand Prix then take that form in to the National Trials," said Wilson.
