Jamaica International Invitational

Track and Field is so big in Jamaica that politicians talk about it as a tourist-drawing goldpot that could lift the country out of its economic malaise. While that might fall on the top of the pile of other Jamaican politicians’ big ideas, the fact of the matter is that Jamaica is the breeding ground of some of the fastest people in the world (currently the fastest, I do believe, in Bolt).

Last weekend was the seventh annual Jamaica International Invitational track and field meet, and event that has apparently gotten larger and larger each year. See the article from the Jamaica Observer, Stars shine! – Jeter, Sinclair, Walker cop world-leading times at JII

Green, gold and black, colors of Jamaica everywhere
