Hyman is Cayman’s lone athlete at IAAF World Indoors

Sprinter Kemar Hyman will be the lone athlete representing the Cayman Islands at the 2018 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Birmingham, England from 1-4 March.

Hyman will compete in the men’s 60m dash. He has a season’s best time of 6.73 seconds and a lifetime best of 6.56 seconds, which he ran in 2012 to match Kareem Streete-Thompson’s national mark.

The 28-year-old competed at the last IAAF Indoor World Championships in Portland, United States in 2016. He finished 11th fastest in the semi-finals with a time of 6.61 seconds and failed to make it to the finals.

All three rounds of the men’s 60m are scheduled for Saturday, 3 March.

Making the trip to Birmingham with Hyman will be national coach Kenrick Williams, who will also serve as manager.

Although he will be the only Cayman Islands athlete in Birmingham, Hyman will be joined by four athletics teammates for the Commonwealth Games in Australia in April where he will run the 100m. Ronald Forbes will run the 110m hurdles, Jamal Walton will run the 200m and 400m, while Carl Morgan will compete in the long jump and Alex Pascal in the javelin.
