Sprint star Eddie Osei-Nketia conditionally selected for NZ's World Championships squad

Athletics New Zealand has selected sprint sensation Eddie Osei-Nketia for September's World Championships, but it comes with a catch.

The 17-year-old has been selected with the condition he will commit his allegiance to New Zealand.

Osei-Nketia is one of nine athletes to be conditionally selected for the Doha meet.

The star, who attends Wellington's Scots College, is at the centre of a tug of war with Australia after claiming their 100m national title.
