‘I am as ready as can be’ – Sprinter Cejhae Greene confident ahead of Tokyo Olympics

By Neto Baptiste

Men’s 100 meters sprinter, Cejhae Greene, is confident and satisfied with his readiness as he prepares to compete at the postponed 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.

Speaking on the Good Morning Jojo Sports Show, Greene assured that despite all of the adversities faced by all athletes leading into the games, he is as prepared as any other competitor hoping to snatch a podium spot in the men’s marquee event.

“I am in a place where I am happy. We’ve had some adversities throughout the season but that happens to everybody because every athlete has their adversities they go through, but coach is happy with where I am. He thinks I am in a state where I can go out there and compete well and we’ve done the work we need to do and so it’s just to go out there and give our best foot,” he said. 

Heat one of the 100 meters is schedule to race off at 10:35 pm (9:35 am Eastern Caribbean) on July 30 with the final scheduled for August 1.

The former Princess Margaret School student said he is further buoyed by the fact that his personal coach, Henry Rolle, is part of the Antigua and Barbuda contingent in Tokyo.

“It’s a different level out here and every top athlete has their coach out here because you could be around the sport and know the sport as much as you want but having your coach there and him knowing you, seeing your flaws and him reminding you to do certain stuff is meaningful,” the athlete said.

Greene, along with swimmer Samantha Roberts, will carry the Antigua and Barbuda flag during the Olympic Games opening ceremony slated for Friday.
