Sporting relatives

Father, Lenworth HYDE (JAM), was a Jamaican international footballer, while two brothers were members of Jamaica's age-group sides, and a third was ranked in equestrian sport. (, 24 Aug 2014) 

Other sports

Was attracted more to football, until discovering hurdling around "age 13 or 14" and seeing that it was "his calling". While playing both, was a left winger on Jamaica's U17 side that advanced to the area CONCACAF qualifying phase of the U17 World Cup. (, 24 aug 2014)

Reason: "I saw the hurdles out one day at school and thought I can do this. I like the hurdles because they require a lot of focus. I just kept going back to hurdles training each year and continued to slowly improve." (, 24 Aug 2014)
Additional information

A news feature in 2014 borrowed an early entry from the young hurdler's Instagram posts, titling the piece: "Look Out, Greatness Is Coming", which appeared prophetic after he won gold in 400m hurdles at the IAAF World Junior Championships and gold in the 110m hurdles at the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games.
