#glnrCHAMPS: Wilson motivated by 100m silver

first_img Yesterday, the teen who has been on a long injury layoff, picked up a brilliant silver in the shorter sprint in 10.52 seconds, finishing behind teammate Michael Stephens (10.41), and now underlines that he is 100 per cent fit mentally and physically. Wilson is certain that he will be contending for a medal in the 200m final, which is set for 5:40 p.m. “I am always confident and I really didn’t have any doubt I would have done well at Champs. I am not very far from my best,” Wilson said. Shayne Fairman, Gleaner Writer Buoyed by a return from injury ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls Championships Class One 100m silver medal winner Tyreek Wilson (Calabar), is ready and raring to challenge for a medal in this afternoon’s mega 200m final at the National Stadium. Wilson, now in Class One, remains hopeful he will be able to rediscover his pre-injury form. “Physically, I am a 100 per cent, and fit mentally a bit more. I have a bit more to go, and I am pushing myself to help to push the Calabar Camp,” Wilson told The Gleaner. After trailing his school’s bitter rivals Kingston College by over 30 points yesterday, and seeing that lead shrink to seven points,  Wilson has a feeling Calabar’s best is best is yet to come today. “We have nothing to worry about, just trying to make the best out of everything, and not make the simple mistakes, and keep trying to capitalise on opportunities, that is it personally,” outlined the athlete. Wilson ran only the relay last year, due to a hamstring injury last year, but is hoping his renewed form will catapult him to the 200m podium as well.last_img read more
