Giving an update on his preparations for the 2012 London Olympics, the United States-based 200m sprinter said since the Olympics are the biggest global sporting event, local companies should start adopting athletes now to ensure they qualify for the Olympics where big mileage is guaranteed.

On his performances, Dzingai said he is currently preparing for the European Circuit that starts in June, but he intends to use the World Championships in Deagu this August as the stepping stone into the London games.

The two-time Olympic entrant, whose best performance was a fourth place finish in the 200-metre sprint at the Beijing Games in 2008, also urged the National Athletics Association of Zimbabwe to assemble a 4x100m relay team for the All Africa Games as he believes that Zimbabwe has the talent to be the best team on the continent and also to be Olympic finalists.
