STETHS' Jauvaney James.

Marquee athlete Jauvaney James says his ambitions are simple for this month's Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association-GraceKennedy Boys & Girls' Athletics Championships win at least three gold medals.

He also wants to help St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) to a top-five finish.

James is in his final year at the championships, and maintains he is not concerned too much with running fast times, but rather in winning.

"I started off my season quiet, not what I expected but it's coming on. My expectation at Champs is to go out there and execute well, and try to make the podium in all my events this year," he said.

Last year, he won bronze in the 800m, 400m hurdles gold and in boys' mile relay open.

James recently anchored STETHS to a second-place finish (3:12.84) behind Calabar High, who took 4x400m gold at the Digicel Grand Prix in a blitzy 3:09.96.

According to James, to remain in the top five at Champs will not be easy, but he and his teammates are ready to make their mark.

"I am in the second half of my season, and looking to peak at the right time and come with something special at Champs," the teen added.
