              That Calabar team will be running at the Penn Relays in about a month's time. They could go faster (under 39 seconds) since they guys will be alot tired versus the multiples races/rounds they all have had to do this past 5 days.

                The meet is so important that the Prime Minister, Minister of Education and Minister of Sports all have their seats right near the finish line.

                    These athletes will assure that Jamaica will continue to dominate the sprints in the future.

                        Around the time of the London Olympics, some dude on another message board wrote that Jamaica's success in the sprints is just a blip that will go away when Bolt retires, after which the USA will dominate the sprints again. These kids are showing that Bolt is only the beginning of a trend, not the end of a streak.

                            I'm watching the rebirth of the men's 400m with Javon Francis and now Akeem Bloomfield young Taylor coming up also ....it looks like a bright future for one of my favorite events from a Jamaican perspective

                              The New York Times has a nice piece on Jamaican sprinting and the Champs competition. Here is the link:
                              http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/06/sp...s-of-the-times

                              KINGSTON, Jamaica — Sound rises like a cliff wall — drums, trombones, trumpets, the ubiquitous vuvuzela, the odd French horn and 10,000 fans screaming.
                              On the blue track below, 15-year-old boys have shot out of the blocks for the 400 meters, postures erect, arms slicing through the tropical air like knives. Faster, faster, they curl around the track as if astride that wave of sound.
