Derek Larner, one of Cayman’s most decorated marathon runners brings home seven medals from the Americas Masters Games in Vancouver, Canada.

Larner competed in seven events, walking away with four gold medals, two silvers and one bronze.

We spoke to him, right after he finished his final race, the half marathon.

“A lot of the top competitors are there and it makes it really tough and then sometimes you go and all of them are not there. I think the thing is with this competition and the reason why I’ve gotten so many medals is a lot of people are preparing for the [2017] World [Master] Championships, so some of the top guys aren’t here. That’s a good thing and a bad thing. its a bad thing because you want to compete against the best people, but obviously if you want some medals its a good thing because it opens the door for some more opportunities. it doesn’t mean there were any easy races, I had to work hard in every single race but as I said it all depends on who turns up on the day.”

Larner also competed in the 10 kilometer road race, 1500-m, 800-m, 500-m, the 4×800 relay and the Steeple Chase.
