        List is usually not finalized/published until the day before the meet.

          Several people mentioned during the DL broadcast that they would be doing the meet, I think their number included Kendrick in the PV.

                  Interesting that they have W800m and W3000m steeple but not for men.

                  Did they just do that for Goule and Praught-Leer?

                    I'm gonna be bold and predict a 10.98 for Felix....and a 22.10 for Elaine. She's in sub 22 form but after Doha-Jamaica-shanghai-back to Jamaica she may be a little tired.

                      10.98 for Felix? lol. Keep dreaming.

                      Not sure what the final lineup will be but I don't expect Elaine will have much competition in the 200m and thus, may not "need" to run sub 22

                        The Jamaica International Invitational Facebook and Twitter pages are now hyping the event as a 200m clash between Thompson and Felix. So maybe Felix is doing the 200m instead?

                          I saw that as well. I would still wait for the start list on Friday to confirm.

                            Athletes started to arrive yesterday(Thursday). Aleec Harris and Jasmine Stowers will also run at the meet.

                            One the things all the international athletes always say about Jamaican fans whether its at a meet in Jamaica(or at the Penn Relays) is that they are always enthusiastic and as an athlete, you love when fans are excited about your sport.

                              DeGrasse plans to put on a show

                              He will face the likes of American LaShawn Merritt and Jamaica's trio of Warren Weir, Nickel Ashmeade and reigning Commonwealth Games champion Rasheed Dwyer in the 200m.


                              Canadian sprint star AndrĂˆ De Grasse said he is hoping to put on a good show for fans at tomorrow's staging of the Jamaica International Invitational meet at the National Stadium.De Grasse, who won silver in the 200 metres and bronze at 100m at last...
