September 2017

Since she began track and field competitively in 2014, Nyoshia Cain has run seven races, six of them classifying as international competitions – her first, the Mexico Championships in Mexico City, was just a “meet”, she says (although she won her first two gold medals there) – and she has come away with eight gold medals (the Mexico Championships in 2014, the Arizona Desert Challenge in 2016 and 2017, and the USA National Championships in Los Angeles in 2017), one silver medal (the Arizona Desert Challenge in 2017), and four bronze medals (the World Para Athletics Championships in 2015 and 2017, the Paralympics in Rio in 2016, and the USA National Championships in 2017). Nyosha, a UWI student, was interviewed by Serah Acham (click here for story).
