Cayman’s top amateur hurdler Rasheem Brown says he’s aiming for a personal at Saturday’s (2 June) Cayman Invitational.
“The lineup will have different islands and Olympians with the Jonathan Cabral from Canada who is an Olympian, I’m pretty excited and will be ready to run fast and make a massive PB. Devin Allen from America, from Calabar Dejour Russell, my rival from last in Kenya’s World Youth, it’s going to be very exciting for me.
Brown, 18, who has been training at Milligan College since September says the added strength and conditioning he’s added to his regime has allowed him to grow as a hurdler.
“Right now based on my body type I’m lifting heavier now to get stronger now to get ready to face bigger guys. The schools are getting me ready to run men’s heights. It’s a very difficult part of transitioning.”
In 2019, Brown will be competing in his last CARIFTA Games in Cayman. He says he’s ready to go out with a bang.
“I want to win a gold medal for my country in my last CARIFTA. This is my last year competing at the junior level and youth level, so I’m very proud of myself.”
