Jasun Sairsingh is a youngster to watch out for in the future as he seems to do everything sporty exceptionally well.
The 12-year-old Cayman Prep and High School student is already standing out in track and field, squash, football, rugby and table tennis.
He qualified for the national team and was slated to go to the Central American and Caribbean Age Group Championships in pentathlon to compete in the 1,000 metres, 60m, high jump, long jump and baseball throw in Curacao last month but the team did not attend those Games.
At least Sairsingh is on the Cayman Islands national team in Trinidad for the Junior Caribbean Area Squash Association Championships from 21-29 July.
He was the squash national Under-11 champion two years ago and repeated that feat in the U-13 division recently. He is also the U-13 champion on the track in the 100m and 400m.
Considering his parents Janet and Bobby are immersed in squash, it is no wonder that is Sairsingh’s first sporting love.
Also a keen student, he excels in math, English, information computer technology and science and would like to become a professional in one of those areas.
“My advice to other kids is to pursue your goals with vigour and don’t give up, even if sometimes things gets difficult,” he said.
