Ready, set, go! Cayman’s runners ready

Cayman’s final two competitors at the Rio Olympics are getting set to take to the track. The two veterans of the delegation, Kemar Hyman and Ronald Forbes, have been putting in their final preparations before competing on the world’s largest sporting stage.

The above video was submitted by Jade Webster, the Cayman Islands Olympic Committee’s Press Representative in Rio.

Hyman, the national record holder in the men’s 100m sprint, will compete in the marquee event. The preliminaries begin on Saturday morning (13 August).

“[I’m] definitely ready. I’ve been waiting for this my whole life. Back in 2012, I was really young, so I was inexperienced but now I’m a little more experienced. I’ve met a lot of guys on the circuit, I’ve learned a lot of things, so I would say I’m ready,” Hyman said ahead of his first race.

Hyman sports a personal best of 9.95 seconds, which he set in Madrid four years ago.

Meantime, Forbes opens competition on Monday (15 August) in the men’s 110m hurdles. He set a new national record of 13.36 seconds in May.

“Standing here, I was able to get it done and here I am ready to compete,” Forbes, the 2015 Island Games gold medalist said.
