Trinidad and Tobago has qualified as 8th fastest at the UCI World Cup, becoming the first T&T tea, to ever qualify out of the first rounds.
T&T was the fastest team after the first two out of three laps, setting up a quick time and turning a lot of heads on the world stage.
Njisane’s Phillip set a national record of 17.540 which was the fastest time for all nations over the first 250 metres with young Nicholas Paul rolling in a quick 13.0 second lap.
Cyclist Njisane Phillip is calling it a day on his career.
Phillip did not advance in the cycling sprint event on Friday despite having one of the fastest times in his opening sprint.
Phillip spoke to CNC3's Robert Dumas in Rio Friday evening where he confirmed that he is retiring from cycling.
