Former St Jago Star girl and many time national senior and junior representative, Kerron Stewart got her 2015 track season rolling with victory over 400 metres at the Camperdown Classics 2015 on Saturday.

Running in heat two, Stewart crossed the line in 55: 14 for the top spot and second overall behind team mate Ristananna Tracey who won her heat in 54.68 second.

Speaking with Yardie Sports, Stewart revealed that she was very much pleased and happy with the victory.

“I am happy with the win. This is the opener, but I wasn’t so much worried about the time. For me the win was more important, because I know the workload that we are under right now and we are not doing much speed work, well, any speed work at all. We are basically loading up right now,” Stewart explained.

When pressed about her season going forward, and seeing her at her pet events, Stewart revealed that she and her coach will sit and work out her schedule. They hope to be selective as to when and where she runs, so as to properly manage her workload for the season.

She also hinted that the Jamaica International Invitational could be the place for her to debut in the 100 or 200, as it is one of the places she likes to run.

Unlike some of her fellow rivals and competitors who have opted for the indoor circuit, when asked about the possibility of her running indoors this year Stewart said that her fans who won’t see her indoor this season for 2015.

“I think my time has past to run indoors ( chuckles). I am not training nor did we make any preparations for indoors. I am preparing for June,July, August and September. But maybe next year, as I want to do an indoor race before I retire” she replied.

Stewart who joined the local based Racers Track Club in 2013, after spending time training and living overseas is looking for a podium finish at the IAAF World Championship 2015, in Beijing China. She wants to enjoy her time left on the track and keep representing her country, fans and herself while she is able to do so.
