Wigan recruit gold medal olympic

Wigan have turned to former Olympic relay champion Dennis Mitchell in a bid to increase the squad's speed. The Warriors already boast two of the quickest players in the game in wingers Brian Carney and Brett Dallas.

But the club feels that Mitchell, who won 4x100m gold at the 1992 Games, can make the team even faster.

Mitchell, with a personal best of 9.91 seconds for the 100m, will work with Wigan during next month's pre-season training camp in Orlando, Florida.
