Wilson wants to be world beater

Dexroy Wilson took up track seriously only two years ago, but already, he is aiming not just at being the best in St Vincent and the Grenadines or the Caribbean, but the best in the world.{{more}}

An emerging sprinter, Wilson, age 16, is a student of the Central Leeward Secondary School, and despite taking to track only recently, is already his making his mark.

Wilson is shoring himself up well at the regular mini meets put on by Team Athletics SVG and wants to continue in that vein, having already won the 100 m, 200 m and 400 m at his school’s sports meet last Wednesday at the Layou Playing Field.

And, already he has caught the eyes of national selectors, who made him part of a St Vincent and the Grenadines team to the Junior Carifta trials in Trinidad and Tobago, last weekend.

Wilson’s eyes though are set on making a dent on the 2013 inter-secondary schools’ meet later this month, when he hopes to take all three sprint events in the intermediate category.

Last year, he won both the 100m and 200m at the island-wide school showdown.

Also an avid footballer, Wilson is idolising the world’s fastest man, Jamaican Usain Bolt and wants to follow in his footsteps.

For Wilson, charity really begins at home, as he labels his physical education teacher, Chester Morgan, as “one the best coaches in the world,” and likewise his school, one of the top educational institutions globally. (RT)
