James Ellington said he is targeting Tokyo 2020 as he completed a remarkable return to 100m sprinting two years after suffering career-threatening injuries.
The Briton, 33, broke his leg in two places and suffered a broken pelvis when he and team-mate Nigel Levine were involved in a 2017 motorbike accident.
Ellington marked his return on Saturday at the Anniversary Games.
He said: “I can knock this on the head – my next milestone is the Olympics.”
Ellington finished last in his heat in a time of 10.93 seconds, but that was irrelevant to him in what was his first race over more than 60m since the accident.
“In the warm-up area, I could feel my pelvis and I had a back problem two or three days ago when I couldn’t even walk,” he added.
“But after everything I’ve been through, there was no way on this planet I wouldn’t make the start line.
“I always said I’d be back competing. I knew I wouldn’t run anything fast – I’ve seen glimpses of speed in training.
“To come out to such a big cheer and have ex team-mates on the line. I’d like to thank my friends and family.
“The emotions haven’t sunk in yet. Anybody out there who doubts themselves – don’t let anybody say you can’t do it. It’s not the performance I’d like, but we know I’m a lot better than that.”
