Chiropractic Assistant Trainee
Andre Clarke was born in Clarendon, Jamaica with Track and Field being one of his earliest passions. Right out of high school, Andre had already competed internationally, at large-scale Track & Field competitions such as, the NACAC (North American, Central American and Caribbean) Under-23 Championships. He also went pro at the age of 19, training alongside some of Jamaica’s finest track-stars, like Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake, and Warren Weir, where they were all trained under revered Track & Field coach, Mr. Glen Mills. In some of his most recent accomplishments, Andre Clarke competed at the XXI Commonwealth Games, which were held on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia in 2018. There, he qualified for the finals in the 400m Hurdles event, placing 7th overall. To finish off his 2018 season, Clarke ranked 7th in the world in the 400m hurdles, with a personal best time of 48.29 sec.
2019 happened to be one of Andre Clarke’s most challenging seasons in the sport, as he suffered a quadricep injury. It was through this injury that he was introduced to PowHer Chiropractic & Wellness Center, where he received several rehab treatments from Dr. Cheryl Lee-Pow. He was able to finish off his 2019 season ranking 7th at the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) National Senior Championships, better known as the “Jamaica Trials”. However, he looks forward to attaining greater victories in the upcoming seasons.
Aside from Track & Field, Andre Clarke attended G.C Foster College of Physical Education & Sport, located in Spanish Town, Jamaica, where he received his certificate in Sports Massage Therapy, in 2016. Currently, he is training to become a Chiropractic Assistant. He mainly assists in guiding patients through proper core training, strength-based conditioning, stretches, and other basic fitness. Clarke aspires to continue his education and training in physical therapy, as well as becoming one of Track & Field’s best hurdlers
