J's feature in the Trinidad Guardian

"Njisane's Life in the fast Lane" by Cherisse Moe

"Blessed with enviable good looks and amazing talent, 18-year-old Njisane Phillip is truly the complete package. Standing at an eye-catching 6’1”, Phillip is quite a hit with the women. Oh, and he’s pretty good at cycling too.

Lightening speed

After winning his first US Junior Track Nationals at the tender age of ten, the cycling sensation—who has been back and forth between the US and Trinidad for the past seven years—knew that big things were in store. Fast-forward to eight years later and Phillip is still burning things up on the tracks.

On May 27, at the Arima Velodrome, he fulfilled yet another goal in his professional career by shattering the national record at the Match Sprint event. Phillip put his legs to work and cycled his way to the finish line in 11.64 seconds, bettering the previous time of 11.85 seconds set by 23- year-old Christopher Sellier."
