Spanish Town, St Catherine:

Windel placed second last year in the 2015 parish finals and decided that this was going to be the year he holds the trophy. He started to study intensely in July for about two and a half hours per day. He enjoys his physical education class at school and his Health and Family Life Education class is his favourite. Football is also one of his loves, though he doesn't play on a team.

The Bee Spellers Coaching Programme with Hanif Brown as head coach prepares him for competition.

His coach explained that he is most thankful for Windel's win because he is from humble beginnings.

Windel on winning: "I feel glad."
