Jamaican Sprinters by Kesha Stewart || July 14 2017
There is a distinctive sound that has been heard from stadia all over the world from Europe to The Americas, Asia and even Down-under.
No its not reggae music, it’s the vibrant strains of the Jamaican National Anthem accompanied by the unmistakable and equally vibrant black, green and gold of the Jamaica national flag.
It the sounds which accompany another gold medal victory. But then again if you have been constantly improving at something for 87 years, the chances are you will earn the respect of your peers. Right? Good.
Then you will appreciate why Jamaica has been recognized the world over for her prowess in the discipline of track and field and more specifically athletics and particularly in the sprints.
Join me as I look at some of famous and best Jamaican sprinters.

There was Alfred Downer and the famous G.C. Foster and in 1948 at the London Olympics the late Herb McKenley announced Jamaica’s entrance into the realms of sprinting on the international stage.
By Then Names Such As Donald Quarrie, Bertland Cameron, Erroll Stewart , Clive Barriffe, Colin Bradford and Floyd Brown carried the flag for Jamaica.
So far we have produced 137 male sprinters and 87 females however, if we continue to produce athletes of this caliber at this rate then it is certain that we will be kept busy rewriting history in the sprints.
