Worrell all set for decathlon
GOLDEN BOY Aaron Worrell is ready to take on the decathlon at the NAAA National Junior Championships in Trinidad and Tobago.
During a presentation at The St Michael School yesterday, Worrell who captured gold in the eight-event octathlon at the CARIFTA Games in Curacao, told NATION SPORT it was a new but thrilling journey.
“Taking on this new event, of course, would be a new experience. It’s one only crazy people do. It has proven to be a tough journey but I think I am enjoying it more and more. Leading up to the final days has been more exciting than ever. It feels like I am reliving CARIFTA,” he said.
The decathlon, which will allow him to qualify for the Pan American Games in South America, will involve Worrell taking on ten gruelling events, including the pole vault which is new to him. However, he has been training daily from 6 a.m. in the morning and again on evenings around 4 p.m., which has allowed him to make great progress. (RG)
