Mothersill goes into semi-finals in 200m in Berlin

| 20/08/2009

(CNS): Cayman Islands hotshot athlete Cydonie Mothersill won her heat in the Women’s 200m at the World Championships in Berlin, Germany, yesterday. Mothersill finished with a time of 22.69 seconds, which qualifies her to go onto the semi-finals. And in the Men’s 100m on 15 August, 19-year-old Kemar Hyman made his debut at the World Championships running alongside former World Champions Tyson Gay and Kim Collins, and placed 4th in his  heat with a time of 10.59 seconds.

Kemar had hoped to post a faster time but felt a slight pinch in the right hamstring, a release from the Cayman Islands Athletic Association reported. After the race he said, “Now that I have experienced the World Championships, I now know what I need to do now in preparation for the Commonwealth Games and CAC Games in 2010.”

Coach Kenrick Williams said of Hyman, “He is very young and has tremendous talent and youth on his side. He now needs to rehab his leg and resume training with his college coach. This is his first World Championships and to finish 4th in a race with the likes of Tyson Gay and Kim Collins speaks volume for the future of Track and Field in the Cayman Islands.”

In the release the Cayman Islands Athletic Association congratulated Hyman on his achievements and wished him all the best in his future athletic career. CIAA also wished Mothersill all the best in the semi-finals 200m which takes place this afternoon (Thursday).

    About time!! Thank you CNS for this positive coverage of our athletes at the World Championships!

    With all of the other depressing stories, it is refreshing to get coverage on our talented Caymanian youngsters making strides (pun not intended) internationally.   I am so impressed and proud of young Kemar and Cydonie. I love cheering for our Caribbean athletes: Jamaica, Bahamas, Trinidad and especially my own CAYMAN!

    Well done! Go Cayman!
