Kwame Laurence

Keston Bledman is a key member of the Trinidad and Tobago men’s 4x100 metres relay team at the inaugural IAAF World Relays, here in Nassau, Bahamas.

A two-time Olympic medallist in the event, Bledman is part of a squad that also includes 2008 Olympic 100m silver medallist Richard “Torpedo” Thompson, Marc Burns, Darrel  Brown and Rondel Sorrillo.

The men’s sprint relay will be contested tomorrow.

Machel Cedenio is part of the men’s 4x400m squad. Just 18, he recently clocked 45.23 seconds – a new national junior (under-20) record, and the fastest time in the world this year by a junior athlete.

T&T will be on show at 7.32 this evening in the opening round of the men’s 4x4.

The Trinidad Express spoke to both Bledman and Cedenio.
