Shernyl Burns showing great promise at High Performance Centre in Jamaica

BRADES, Montserrat – The Montserrat Amateur Athletic Association said it is pleased with the progress that Montserratian Shernyl Burns is making on the track in Jamaica.

Shernyl Burns, an accomplished cricketer who has represented the island of Montserrat, began training with IAAF accredited Coach Wilston Scotland a few years ago to improve his overall performance in cricket. Shernyl showed talent and interest for track and was recruited to represent Montserrat in the CARIFTA GAMES, the CAC GAMES and the COMMONWEALTH GAMES in INDIA in 2010.

Being impressed with his performances, an area representative for the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) based in Jamaica offered Burns a partial scholarship to train at the High Performance Centre at the University of Technology in Jamaica.

This is the third athlete from Montserrat who has benefitted from this training.

Burns is taking full advantage of the opportunity and has also been successfully admitted to the University of the West Indies to pursue academic studies.

Renowned Jamaican Coaches Paul Francis and Stephen Francis are very pleased with the improvement of his performances.

Shernyl is now training with the University of Technology (UTEC) Track and Field team and was part of the Gold medal team in the 4 x 100 m relay in the Inter-Collegiate Championships in Jamaica in March with a winning time of 40:06 seconds.

Shernyl will be a part of the UTEC contingent that will participate in the Penn Relays in Philadelphia USA from the 24th of April.

Proud mother Dr. Sheron Burns expressed her “thanks to the MAAA, IAAF, the Ministry of Sports, Coach Brown at HPTC in Jamaica, Kingsley Howe, Mr. and Mrs. Placide, Jeff and Maria Lane, Mr. David Brandt, and my aunts Alice, Josephine, Mary and Zel  and cousins” who have been supporting her son in his efforts to study and succeed in track.

The Montserrat Amateur Athletic Association wishes Burns every success and hopes that his performances on the track can enable him to secure a full scholarship to continue with his academic studies.

Coach Wilston Scotland states that “this is a perfect example of how discipline and performance on the field can assist with your career aspirations.”  He hopes that Shernyl’s performances will encourage more enthusiasm for track and field in Montserrat.

Mean while locally based athlete Lester Ryan is preparing to participate in the World Junior U20 Championships in Barcelona Spain in July 2012.
