Confident Stennett aiming at 100m gold
Kingston College's first-rate Class Two sprinter, Terrique Stennett, will have a big part to play in his team's championship push, and the athlete who is as fearless as they come, is poised and ready.
STAR Sports caught up with the former Vaz Preparatory standout ahead of his third Boys Champs appearance and he was as usual very confident .
"So far my season has been going great despite having a slight injury but it's been great. I think I can get it done - I'm a fighter and I've been fighting all season, so I must can fight it at Champs," he expressed
However, he is cautious of the challenges he will face when he matches up with St Elizabeth Technical's defending 100 metres champion Sachin Dennis, who looks to be in imperious shape heading into the championship.
"All I really need to do is get a fabulous start because as you know, Sachin has a great start so once I get the start with him, everything will go smoothly," reasoned the Carifta Trials Under-17 champion.
While Stennett is cautious in his predictions, Jevaughn Swaby, a second former at KC, is confident in his schoolmate's ability to upset the favourite.
"I think that Stennett will win the Class Two 100m because I have seen him training very hard," shared an exuberant Swaby.
Stennett, however, ran in the 200m heats yesterday and appears to be still bothered by his slight injury.
Like the rest of his teammates, last year's Class Three 100m champion, is eager to grab hold of the Mortimer Geddes trophy and believes the team is highly motivated after seeing the title elude them last year.
