'I blew the world's mind.'
I started running when I was 9 or 10 years old. When I was 15, I won the World Junior Championship (in the 200m). That blew me up and I became a star in Jamaica.
I can't live outside of Jamaica. The first time I went out on the circuit, I was so homesick I actually almost cried because I wanted to come back home. I wanted to go home. I just can't be outside of Jamaica for long. That's why I didn't leave and go to the States.
My start is not perfect, but it's good, and I've got power. I've got a lot of things working for me, so I think if I get my start right it's going to be hard to beat me. It's all about putting the perfect race together.
My body is like breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don't think about it, I just have it.
Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tone the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.
was playing cricket first and my cricket coach was the one that introduced me to track and field. I made the switch because I was actually good at it. I was a good cricket player, but track and field was bigger. There were more competitions to do. When I was younger, cricket was just one tournament. I had more time to do track and field.
My relationship with everyone in Jamaica is good. Asafa and I are good friends. We talk sometimes. We both like cars, so we talk about that a lot. He's got a lot of cars. We hang out.
