I have improved at Wolmer's - Robinson

March 20, 2017
file Alex Robinson, now at Wolmer's Boys, competing for Calabar in the 110m hurdles at the ISA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls Athletics Championships in 2015.

A year ago, Alex Robinson was a member of the successful Calabar high school team, which won the male title at the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls Athletics Championships.

Fast forward a year later and Robinson will be turning out in different colours as he will be competing for Wolmer's Boys School after enrolling into sixth form last September.

Robinson will be contesting the 110m hurdles and 200 metres in Class One and is relishing his chances in both events, especially in the 110m hurdles where he finished a close second in the Under 20 event at the Carifta Trials behind former teammate Orlando Bennett.

 

More attention

 

"The season so far has been good as now at a smaller school, I am able to get more attention and for me when I left Calabar it was not only about winning but being a better person overall," he said.

Asked if he felt motivated competing against his former teammates his reply was: "It is not about going out there to beat them as it is just to compete and do well and I am not focusing on them but about me as we are all good friends," he continued.

"The best is yet to come from Alex and my fans can look out for magnificent things that they have never seen before as my new coach has been teaching me different things, which are working and this will be seen at Champs," concluded Robinson, who added that it took some time for him to adjust to his new environment.
