When he isn’t sharing the good news of Jesus Christ or volunteering his time to assist the less fortunate or pursuing his academic interests, Oein trains to make himself more competitive at the local and regional athletics competitions.
He naturally picked up the Josiah’s family sport of long distance running during his secondary school days, however, it was discontinued after a short two (2) year season due to injury and other personal interests; such as his career in the Insurance industry.
Nevertheless, as of 2014 he took the family’s athletic fame to another level by finishing in the top three (3) at the Barbados National Triathlon / 25th Anniversary [swim / bike / run race]. Adjudged as a fast rising star, Oein has seen a podium finish for all of his local and regional races [running, duathlon and triathlon].
Besides his athletics success, Oein is known for his cheerfulness, optimism and self-motivation to learn new things.
He began working as a technical support engineer at a privately owned Information Technology (IT) Network Security Consulting firm “CariNetworks Ltd” in 2013, the same year he graduated with a distinction in Microcomputer Technology – City and Guilds from the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic (SJPP) in Barbados.
He was also prized as the Outstanding Graduate of 2013 from the Electrical and Engineering division, along with the Sportsman of the Year award.
Oein’s many achievements during his studies at SJPP started some years before graduation. In 2012 , on the picturesque island of St Lucia, Oein became the first student of SJPP, and Barbados by extension, to gain three (3) individual gold medals at the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College annual – OECS Track & Field championship. The medal count for that year’s championship did not stop there, as his team won gold for the open men 4 x 100m mixed relay. The four member team comprised of runners from Antigua, Barbados and two (2) members from Jamaica.
If Oein is not cycling around the island or swimming from one end to the other in the beautiful waters of Carlisle Bay, he spends time practicing/learning Spanish and French, playing dominoes and to a lesser extent, exhibiting his marksman skills at the game of pool.
Oein is embarking on a Triathlon Caribbean Tour, which includes three (3) destinations and three (3) races over the period November 2015 to June 2016. These destinations include: Trinidad, Grenada and Tobago respectively.
Furthermore, he is also looking forward to competing in Europe and North America during the 2018 and onward seasons.
