Waiting...wait i hear the music
I don't think anyone expected what happened this year in the Olympics. Those of us who are avid track and field fans were hoping for the best and were given new hope as athletes we have long suspected as dopers -Marion Jones etc- were finally caught and now the real competition could start. It was the time for the true potential of hard work to exhibited and what an exhibit it was. We saw a man literally fly a blistering 9.69, shattering records that caused previous champions to go green with envy- Carl Lewis etc- and a honourable few -Micheal Johnson- to realise the baton had passed. The majority of our team is from the inner city and rural Jamaica, so it made their achievements that much greater as now children in these depressed communities now had heroes they could relate to. On the other hand as a Jamaican these athletes uplifted us all and put Jamaica in the headlines again. People are amazed that a little island with a population of approximately 2,800,000 can consistently produce world class athletes, music that captures the imagination etc, that's who we are i guess a nation that produces amazing people over and over again...:-)

I agree...I think so many people have a misconception of jamaica and it's crimes, and it's so sad to me because I love my country. We are beautiful people on an beautiful island...One LOVE
