Tears of joy from daughter Sydney

Tuesday 13, April-2004

by Marisa Camejo, Trinidad Express

Brian Lara's record-breaking performance at the Antigua Recreation Ground on yesterday brought his seven-year-old daughter Sydney to tears.

“She cried and cried; she cried her eyes out; tears of joy, of course.

“We both cried. I’m glad he took the record away from the Australians. I k he would do it, and he did,” said Lara’s former girlfriend and mother of his daughter, Leasel Rovedas, during a brief interview with the Express.

Lara, fondly referred to as the Prince of Port-of-Spain, yesterday reclaimed Test cricket’s highest individual scoring title after losing it to Australian Matthew Hayden in 2003. The “Trinbagonian” is also the first man in 127 years of the game to hold the world record twice.

Yesterday at the Lara family home in Cantaro, Santa Cruz, one of the cricket superstar’s sisters, who asked not to be identified, would only say that “the family is very happy”.

Lara’s elder brother Winston, who watched the television broadcast with more than a dozen friends in his backyard near the family home, said he woke up early yesterday to prepare himself for therecord-breaking event.

“I was expecting it to happen. When something nice happens, especially in Trinidad, we always feel elated. And I like sports, so once it happens in sports, I feel good,” he noted.

About his younger brother, the elder Lara said Brian’s talent was apparent from an early age: “I always admired what he could have done.
