Keshorn Walcott - A Profile

When Keshorn Walcott won the London Olympic javelin title in 2012, shocking the athletics world and himself, he was still a teenager.

Many observers in TT and abroad asked themselves, and whoever would listen, how did the country`s second Olympic gold medal arrive in this speciality of Finland, and not in a sprint race.

The simple answer lies with the champion himself: a quiet and humble but very determined individual.
