    Its going to be a great meet.

    What a great thing for ISSA to do to offer a subscription stream. I just bought mine, its going to be my favorite 5 days of the year. If someone would have told me this would have been available two years ago, I would have thought they were crazy. It's great to be a track fan in 2015!

              Obviously, it will be the hard-core Jamaican fans and alums that watch this. Could people offer periodic summaries with implications of those results? Don't leave out the field events and longer races, as it seems there is a steady progression of talent and effort going in to these areas.

                This is the best high school championships in the world. Anyone who is a true track and field fan will definitely want to watch it. It doesn't get any better than this at the high school level. No other high school championships in the world(even those in the US) compares.

                  Wonderful broadcast, wonderful meet, wonderful very knowlegable commentary. Boys 400m class 1 just began, Hakeem Bloomfield looked majestic. He sleepwalked past the competitors

                    While I have not seen it, I suspect that the high school portion of the Penn Relays runs it pretty good competition. Not as good in the 100/200/400 and related relays, but when you add the 800/1600/3200, DMR, and whatever field events they hold, it is probably much broader in its competition and high competitive level.

                      Poorly implemented web site. I wasn't able to pay. The thing initially appeared to be processing my credit card, but it didn't do anything, and any further attempts to pay are met with the message "this user is already logged." (yes, that's "logged", not "logged in.")

                      I'll have to settle for reading results online at https://www.facebook.com/JamaicaOlympics. I figure somebody will post some of the key races on Youtube.

                        If you're having trouble accessing the excellent stream. ESPN is offering great indepth radio commentary and analysis along with a radio stream of the meet:

                              all 100 semifinals for boys and girls just finished. Great races. Raheem Chambers getting passed up in his class 1 semi was one of the more notable results. Really worth subscribing to the video stream over listening on the radio.
