Jamaicans Abroad And On The Roc Be Proud – We Killed It In Beijing!!!!

Our Athletes always place us on the International map where the reference is continuously made about the ‘gifts’ that we have on our soil.  If only those who have the autonomy can take this Country to higher heights as our athlethes do each and every time.  One can only hope that our short sightedness will be overcome by what is staring us right in the face and that is the power of truly branding our athletes by paying them what they derserve, then marketing them through Brand Jamaica far and wide.

We ended the Championships ahead of the mighty USA in gold medals with Usain Bolt being the only athlete to have won two (2) individual gold medals.  Do you really appreciate and comprehend this feat?
