Additional information

NAME GAME
Born on the east coast of Trinidad in the fishing community of Plaisance Village, Mayaro. Mayaro, the Arawak name for the area, is often translated as 'the place where the cassava grows'. Named after her grandmother. (iaaf.org, 10 Aug 2016)


SWEET START
Took up throwing events after watching her older sister, Natasha, compete. Enticed to take part in her first athletics event when giant Ovaltine cookies were awarded to the top three placegetters. "I wanted the cookies more than the medals." (caribbean-beat.com, Aug 2008)


TASTES LIKE HOME
Living and training in the US, BOREL misses foods from home, particularly roti (a type of bread). "Last time I flew from Trinidad, my bags were way too heavy - so I just left some of my clothes behind and kept the roti skins." (caribbean-beat.com, Aug 2008)
