Gabriel Lim returns to Penn Relays seeking success amidst injury concerns


Gabriel Lim, a rising star from Guyana, is set to return to the prestigious Penn Relays where he made headlines last year by clinching Gold in the High School Boys Javelin throw, recording a distance of 61.24m.

Lim’s journey since then has been marked by remarkable improvement, with a significant leap of 15.5 feet (approx. 4.5m) in his personal best.

The talented athlete has not only caught the eye of enthusiasts, but has also garnered the attention of Division 1 College Southeastern Louisiana (SLU), with whom he has signed, and will be representing at the Penn Relays.

Lim’s sights are firmly set on repeating his success at this year’s games, despite facing tougher competition and nursing a groin strain.

Heading into the competition with a personal best of 65.98m, Lim acknowledges the challenges ahead.

In an exclusive interview with News Room Sport, he stated, “I won last year, but I was in high school. The competition this year will be tougher as I’m in college and to add to that, I’m nursing a groin strain. Nevertheless, I’ll just have to put my best foot forward and compete to the best of my ability regardless.”

Lim’s determination and resilience will be put to the test as he takes to the field at 13:45h on Friday (April 26) at the historic Franklin Field Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Penn Relays, running from April 25-27, 2024, promises to showcase some of the finest young talents in track and field, and Lim is poised to leave his mark once again.
