Trinidad and Tobago’s Machel Cedenio was in inspiring form as the second day of the NGC/NAAATT National Open Champs came to a close at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in that country on Saturday.

Running in the final of the 400 metres, Cedenio brought back glimpses of his old self, smiting the field to clock 44.52, more than a second faster than his closest rival.

Second in the one-lap event was Dwight St Hillare, who stopped the clock in 46.08, while Darren Alfred was good enough for third with his 46.63.

According to Cedenio, he isn’t running very fast just yet and instead is working on getting stronger, bearing in mind the length of the season with the World Championships all the way in September.

“I’m enjoying the process,” he said in a post-race interview with SportsMax’s Ricardo Chambers.

According to Cedenio, preparation for this season is a little more difficult because it is longer and therefore his coach has had to tweak the process in ways that make things, in a word, interesting.

“It is difficult because you’ve got to fluctuate a lot of things in training. Normally we would be doing faster stuff, but at this time he has been running me for strength,” said Cedenio.
