Seanie Selvin is ready to help Calabar High win a fifth consecutive Mortimer Geddes Trophy at next month's ISSA GraceKennedy Boys and Girls' Athletics Championships.

The 19-year-old believes it will be a memorable year at the championship.

"I am one of the seniors and providing leadership for the team," Selvin said, following his Class One 110m hurdles win at last Saturday's Queen's-Grace Jackson meet inside the National Stadium.

"This opening performance I think was good," he said after his race. "I hope we (Calabar) are victorious at Champs and will keep it that way for many more years," he commented.

The Class One hurdles star ran the fastest time overall of 14.40 in the event at the meet and is preparing well for Champs.

"Two times daily I go at the gym and work out, after the gym I go in training and do a lot of short sprints. I have a slight hamstring injury but it's improving.

"My personal best in the 110m hurdles is 13.40 seconds, and I am aiming for a time below 13 seconds," he told STAR SPORTS.

Selvin who will run the hurdles, 100m and 4x100m at Champs is confident of victory.

No fear of any rivals this year, Kingston College or any of them. We have confidence, and I think we have Champs locked for the next couple of years."
