“Well basically, my training is my major contributing factor, because if I didn’t train my performance would not be as good,” the Everest Cricket Club player pointed out.

Bissu, for his dominance, is likely to turn out for Guyana in both sports, having almost cemented his spot on the junior national table tennis team to participate in the upcoming Junior Caribbean Tab

His three match-winning performances with the ball should certainly see him being one of Guyana’s leading spinners in this year’s West Indies Regional Under – 17 tournament which is usually played in the Twin Island Republic.

For him, those possibilities, the latter more so, brings elation.

“I felt accomplished and excited knowing that I would most likely represent Guyana in both sports. I know my training is paying off,” an elated Bissu noted.

In that regard, Stabroek Sport enquired which is more fulfilling – success with his racquet, or with the ball in his hand. His response seemed calculated and wasn’t surprising.

“I enjoy and love cricket more. Cricket would be my priority and tennis my second choice. I would choose cricket over tennis because, in Guyana, it is more recognised and supported. So playing cricket would be better than playing tennis in Guyana,” he articulated.

His success, however, has not been without the outstanding support of his family, who according to him is always there to show support, whether he is playing either sport, which enhances his performances.

It would undoubtedly be a wonderful story to follow if indeed he gets the opportunity to represent the Golden Arrow Head in both disciplines. (Stabroek News)
