Neil Stone – Wigg is getting ready for the World’s Masters Squash Championships in South Africa.

The tournament is played more than 6,000 feet above sea level. To help him familiarize himself with the altitude he needs to wear an altitude mask.

Stone-Wigg qualified earlier this year when he came second in the CASA’s over 50’s Caribbean Tournament. He has been training for two months with Cayman’s National Squash Coach Mark Chaloner.

Stone- Wigg says, ” Really, what it’s doing is training the lungs, but the bigger part of what it is doing is training the brain, its telling the brain not to switch off when it gets less oxygen.”

“I think that will help him, a huge amount and give him a big boost more so than any other people that train hard. It will just help stay relax and stay calmer, in which case will help him make use of the small oxygen that is there.”

Stone – Wigg has also been training with some of Cayman’s best including Cameron Stafford. Janet Sairsingh, the current Caribbean Area Squash Association President will also be competing in the ladies masters for the Cayman Islands.

John Macrury, who previously played under Cayman will now be with Canada won the World’s Men Over 60 category in 2012 and 2014.

The championships will begin on September 24th…
