    This is just the start! There is a great deal of work to be done on both sides to overcome the history of misunderstanding and distrust. I see this agreement bearing fruit over the next 3 or 4 years with the benefit of the deeper pool of athletes to explore. An issue for the STFA is how to leverage the availability of ... more

I did not realize that usain was the only male Jamaican individual medalist in the sprints.

  • I am still trying to understand how Chris Taylor's mile relay run is considered one of the best track and field performances of 2016. The two local stations show the last 20 meters of the race with Chris getting by Bloomfield and winning the relay. We do not see the beginning of the race where Taylor gets a 20M lead.... more
