TALK CITY 91.1 FM spoke with Keshorn Walcott’s cousin, Carlos, about his cousin’s amazing achievement. Here are highlights of his interview with Vidia Ramphal…
– Keshorn was a cricketer at the age of 17. One day he was watching his cousin and friends do their decathlon training, and challenged them to a “javelin throw-down” .
– On his very first throw of the javelin, at the tender age of 17, Keshorn threw the CARIFTA record distance… and the rest is history!
– When Keshorn is under pressure, he is at his very best, as we saw today in the Javelin Finals
– Keshorn is a very quiet personality, who is always humble
– He would be blown away by his amazing achievement today, especially since he bested and beat his mentor in the sport, Andreas Thorkildsen of Norway

    I was in the Stadium that night when your athlete delivered such a stunning surprise and it evoked warm memories when another one of your athletes, Hasely Crawford,shocked the US sprinters. A great win for T&T by Keshorn,and well done to the 4×100 too
