Bromfield a special talent
Junelle Bromfield of St Elizabeth Technical High is a very special talent.
Yesterday the middle distance star completed one of the most difficult feats at the ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Championships with gold medals in the 400m, 800m and 1500m events.
After taking the 1500 metres in 4:40.77 on Friday, the St Elizabeth star returned to take the 400m in early afternoon yesterday in 51.74. Two hours later she dismantled the 800 metres field clocking 2.09.70 to bring the National Stadium crowd to its feet.
A modest Bromfield said her accomplishment was not as difficult as it appeared.
"It wasn't that difficult because I paced myself throughout the rounds and I kept my composure in all my races and that is how I was able was deliver in all of them," she said.
"I feel very proud, because I am being strongly motivated by my mother and father and my coach is always there pushing me and that is how I was able to accomplish what I did," she added.
The middle distant sensation was also touched by the reception the stadium crowd gave her in the final 100 metres of the 800m.
"It was heart warming because I know that STETHS do not have many supporters, it's mainly KC and Calabar and all those schools, so for all of them (spectators) to be supporting me I really appreciate it," she said.
