The Latest From Jamaica!

  1. Usain Bolt Beaten by 'Beast'!

    "Usain Bolt is not used to standing on the silver medal podium, but that's exactly where he was during the 100m medal ceremony last night at the National Athletics Trials, as Yohan Blake, nicknamed 'The Beast', produced the run of his life, to win in a stadium-record 9.75 and, in the process, hand his training partner his first-ever 100m loss in Jamaica" Read on here.... The trials continues into Sunday

  2. Military Tattoo Wow Spectators

    "The Jamaica Defence Force's (JDF) Polo Field at Up Park Camp became a parade ground for the execution of marches, physical training drills, rescue demonstrations and for enjoying the musical prowess of the various groups.

    The background for the performance area was a giant backdrop of the army's Newcastle training ground". More in this Gleaner Article.
