Riker Hylton is now a part of the Racers Track Club quarter-mile training group. He started training under coach Glen Mills at the UWI Mona Bowl this Monday 17 December after completing his studies at Louisiana State University.
During his two years at LSU, he was an outstanding member of the university’s 4×400 metres relay team. He was also a member of Jamaica’s bronze medal-winning 4×400 metres relay team at the Daegu World Championships last year; as well as of the London Olympic team. He has a personal best time of 45.30 seconds.
At Racers, he will be reuniting with his former team-mate Yohan Blake — with whom he ran some memorable relay races while at St Jago High School.
