As his final Olympic appearance in Paris approaches, Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake aims to establish a lasting legacy. While acknowledging his achievements on the track, Blake stresses the significance of inspiring others through his foundation and invites fans to join his journey to Paris via a new app launch.

Acknowledging the rigorous path ahead, Blake remarks, "Join me as I embrace the challenges and trust the process on my road to the Olympic Games 2024. Remember, the journey is just as important as the destination."

Coach Jae Edwards underscores the mental fortitude crucial for top-tier sprinters like Blake. "Yohan would have been training from his St Jago days to perform at the level that he did and now we’re re-doing that," Edwards explains. "I don’t believe people understand the science. Its years’ worth of training. It doesn’t happen overnight, it takes time. That’s what these sessions will showcase," he adds, emphasizing the mental resilience needed in the face of criticism.

Blake draws inspiration from his Jamaican compatriots, particularly Usain Bolt, in navigating criticism and maintaining focus. One day I saw how Jamaica stadium boo Usain Bolt and Usain come to training and said ‘Yohan when you’re doing this thing, do it for you.’ From that I tend to just focus on myself and use those critics to my advantage. Prove them wrong all the time. Know what you’re doing is not for them, it’s for you. God gave me a talent and I’m going to use it to show them my art," Blake shared.

"What keeps me focused is the hunger and the drive to do much better than I’ve done in the past. I want to leave a mark and a legacy. I am running for a cause," Blake asserts. "I want people to remember Yohan and be inspired to put their best foot forward in spite of," he concludes, hoping to inspire others to pursue their aspirations with determination and passion.
