Additional information

TRAGEDY
Coach, Xavier "Dag" SAMUELS, died in September last year after local reports said he fell from the roof during Hurricane Irma on the island of Tortola on the British Virgin Islands. (flotrack.org, 9 Sep 2017)


BOUNCE BACK
Released from Central Arizona College as a younger athlete because of a problem with his lower back and returned to the British Virgin Islands in 2016. "People would say getting released would have a negative impact. But getting released was probably the best thing, because it showed me how to work, achieve my goal and don’t take anything for granted." (islandsun.com 24 Nov 2016)


DISAPPOINTMENT
Going in as the world leader, he was one of the pre-event favourites for gold in the men's 400m hurdles final at the 2017 World Championships in London, but he was disqualified in his first round heat for a lane infringement. (eurosport.com, 6 Aug 2107)
