    There are five (seven) events that (can) take less than 48 seconds, the 100, 200, 400, 110h, and 400h (two more for the 4x); Jamaica's men cover less than half of them; hardly the true golden age when they can rarely take bronze in the majority of the races. The women do better than the men, and they have players in the 800 and even a decent 3000SC gal.
    How about the Golden Age of Sprinting when it comes to events that take less than 40 seconds and you don't have to leap over hurdles

          By what definition are the CG a global championship?

            The above paragraph was a quotation from the newspaper article cited in the opener, and I'm sorry I didn't make that clear. My own statement in the paragrah that followed actually pointed to the restricted nature of the CG and the fact that the US and France are not eligible. Likewise, Jamaica is forgiven for not holding the sprint titles in the European and Asian games.

                Jamaica will continue to be the major force in the sprints for at least the next 20 years, a century old high school system and the addition of pro and collegiate systems will ensure this.

                  I think that one of the top throwing recruits is a Jamaican (male).

                    The Jamaican dominance continued today. Jamaicans won the mens and womens 200m(Anneisha McLaughlin and Dwyer) dominated the field in both events.

                      Jamaica's gold medal rush continues at the WUG being held in China.

                      Jamaica has now won 6 gold medals.
