Bledman Goes Back To School
Updated: Oct 20, 2021
After more than 15 years of service to country through sport, 2008 Olympic gold medalist (4x100m relay) and national sprinter Keston Bledman has decided to go back to school.
As far as men’s sprinting is concerned, Bledman has held it down for Trinidad and Tobago for so long, representing in three Olympic Games and several regional tournaments and was one of the few consistent athletes in the men’s 100m for such a long period. The 33-year-old attended Pleasantville Secondary and did not complete CXC but one thousand races and one thousand medals later, Bledman has gone back to school, but this time, in the U.S. The local sprint star has shown that it's never too late to learn.
