He strained a tendon in his right knee while competing at the 2019 Diamond League event in Stockholm, Sweden. (worldathletics.org, 25 Oct 2019)
:
He took up athletics at Papine High School in Kingston, Jamaica. (worldathletics.org, 25 Oct 2019)
:
At high school he also competed in sprinting and high jump before deciding to focus on long jump. "I was always winning the long jump at our annual school sports day and perhaps that's what coach [Shanieke] Osbourne saw and started to encourage me. I prefer the long jump over the high jump because the high jump is too technical and I don't like to turn my back to things." (worldathletics.org, 25 Oct 2019)
