Following his well-deserved Prime Minister's Youth Award win for excellence in sports, track star Warren Weir granted a sit-down interview with the Sunday Gleaner to dish on everything from his ascent in the ranks of world sprinting to his favourite pastimes to being a one-woman man. "The demands of my relationship are manageable, as we have learnt over time to compromise and just enjoy life with each other," says the Olympic bronze medallist, who proposed to longtime sweetheart Natalya McGhie on New Year's Eve. "The public spotlight has just been more of a motivating force to keep me extra focused on track and field."
"It was definitely a good start to the season," says sprint phenom Usain Bolt, analyzing his sizzling 14.42-second performance in the Mano a Mano challenge in Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Sunday. "I'm just looking forward to continuing and staying injury-free. If I'm invited, I'll definitely come back. I enjoy it here. It's a wonderful weather." Rio will also play host to the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.
