Tamara Myers ready for 2018 season

In a recent interview with Tamara Myers, she discusses her 2017 season and what she expects for
2018.

Myers indicated that 2017 was her best season in a long time, especially due to improvements in her
triple jump. So much, in fact, that she is the Bahamian record holder in the event. Myers made the World
Championships, becoming the first Bahamian to compete in the triple jump at the event.

Although she finished last in her group with a jump of 13.41 in the event, Myers said it was a great
experience particularly as she got the opportunity to compete against those she faced collegiately and
against the greatest world class triple jumpers.

As for her decision with her opening event, Myers wants to see where she is at early in the season. She
wants to make an indoor meet feels confident where her abilities are now in terms of the triple jump.

In her current event, there is more of a challenge to complete the jump as the run-up is shorter, only 45
feet (down from normal of 55 or 60 feet). Although her distance was not her best, she says it was "pretty
ok" considering the short run-up.

Myers feels significantly more advanced and improved than last season and is looking forward to
becoming even better in the future. Knowing what she has already accomplished and her work ethics,
Myers will likely see more qualification on World Championship teams and also improved personal times.
