A new hurdle
Home drums are beating first for Barbados’ World Champion hurdler Ryan Brathwaite.
In an interview with WEEKEND SPORT at The Lester Vaughan School, the 2009 gold medallist in the 110 metres hurdles, said he was back home to “reset” himself and get the support that he deemed was lacking in Orlando, Florida, where he was based for the last three years.
“I’m here to get back that support of everyone in Barbados. The coaching is very good here and I was missing my old training routine, it was better than how I trained overseas. It is easier here. It was tough there because of the number of athletes on the team,” he said.
“I’ve been training with Justin Gatlin, and Kelly Wells, some well known names. It has been a pleasure training with them but I had to come and reset myself with Alwyn Babb and work on the major stuff I was missing out on. We actually have a plan for next year,” said Brathwaite who won the gold medal at the World Championships, in Berlin, Germany, five years ago.
