British sprinter Richard Kilty is hoping to round off an excellent 2014 season with a relay win in Marrakesh this weekend.

Sprinter Richard Kilty has revealed that the British 4x100m relay team are keen to build on their summer success with another win at the IAFF Continental Cup in Morocco.

The quartet won gold at last month's European Championships in Zurich and Kilty, who rose to prominence when he became 60m world indoor champion in February, wants to round off a stellar year with victory in Marrakesh.

The 25-year-old told Gazette Live: "I've won four major medals – individual gold in the World Indoors, gold in the 4x100m relay at the Europeans, silver in the sprint relay at the Commonwealth Games and bronze in the 4x100m relay at the inaugural World Relay Championships – this year.

"To finish all of that with a flourish on a home track in front of a home crowd was amazing.

"Morocco is my final competition and it would be nice if we can put in another good performance. We've been together since May when we competed in the Bahamas and we did the business in our final outing when we won gold in the Europeans."

The team will be representing Europe, rather than Great Britain, at this weekend's competition in North Africa.
