THE SKY IS DEFINITELY NOT FALLING

For the past decade and a half Jamaica has been blessed with an abundance of athletic talent. Don't get me wrong, Jamaica has always had athletic talent. From GC Foster to Arthur Wint, Lennox Miller, Donald Quarrie, Raymond Stewart, Merlene Ottey, Juliet Cuthbert, Brigette Foster-Hylton and Veronica Campbell- Brown, Jamaica has had a seemingly constant stream of world-beating talent.
