The following is a statement from Christopher Taylor
KINGSTON, Jamaica – Since my last run at the Grace/ISSA Boys and Girls Championship in March this year, I discovered I have an injury which requires me to seek extensive treatment. I have decided to undergo that treatment overseas along with recovery.
My focus now is full recovery for the 2019/2020 track and field season.
Leading up to “Champs” a lot of misinformation has been published and I want to use this opportunity to clear the air.
- There was an incident with a teacher and members of the track team in December 2018
- At no time during that incident I made any physical contact with any teacher
- The incident was unfortunate and as the Captain of the track team at the time, I acted in the most responsible way, which I believed helped to prevent any further physical altercations
That said, I am satisfied that I have served Calabar with distinction on and off the track. I achieved a number of personal and professional goals while being a student and I want to use this opportunity to thank my family, the entire school family (past and present) and the Jamaican people at home and abroad.
While I am overseas, along with my rehabilitation process, I will also be looking at opportunities for tertiary education. As soon as more updates are available, my team will communicate the progress made.
Thanks for the continued support.
