TORONTO, Canada - Virgin Islands (VI) ‘Golden Boy’ Kyron A. McMaster, continues to dominate the athletic track, this time copping ‘Gold’ at the just concluded North America, Central America, and Caribbean (NACAC) Athletics Senior Championships, which was ran from August 10, 2018 to 12, 2018, in Toronto, Canada.

The Virgin Islander won the 400m hurdles finals on Sunday August 12, 2018, with a time of 48.19s.

McMaster has throughout the 2018 NACAC meet, been the dominant force on the track in the 400m discipline.

On the first day of competition—Friday August 10, 2018—McMaster led five English-speaking Caribbean athletes into the final of the 400m hurdles.

McMaster, who won the Central American and Caribbean Games (CAC) title in a record 47.60s last week, eased into the Final with the fastest time – 49.16s.

Back to Drawing Board

Speaking with the VI’s very own Dean H. Greenaway, aka ‘The Sportsman’—in Toronto for the 2018 NACAC meet with the VI Delegation—McMasters said, “…it feels good to win another Gold Medal for the British Virgin Islands.”

He told Greenaway, “I was just happy that I could deliver especially with the tough conditions.”

The VI star athlete confessed however, while “it’s always good to win; I’m a bit disappointed with the time-wise.”

According to McMaster, it is now time to be heading back to the ‘drawing board,’ in order to assess the performance.

Despite winning gold at the 2018 NACAC, McMasters time of 48.19s, represents a decline in his personal running time, having ran a record time of 47.60s, just last week at the CAC Games.

The VI Athlete told Greenaway, his NACAC game-plan was no difference from previous meets, “go out execute, do what we supposed to do.”

Speaking to the final race, McMaster said, the actual condition of the track was not much of a bother, “I just went out there and run my race.”
