    This thread as usual makes its own path. Satch asked about the top 5 Caribbean 100/200 sprinters. Now we're on to 400m runners (predominantly) and in that respect, Jamiaca, not counting other great Caribbean athletes such as Jauntorena, has had 5 gold medalists in OG/WChampionships run under its colors.

    The top 5 lists of 100/200 sprinters for the whole Caribbean so far only has 2 Gold winners, Crawford and Quarrie.

    Outside of the USA, Jamaica rocks in the 400m!

      You just cannot compare eras. Brutal seems to say that he rates Oba Thompson over McDonald Bailey. How can you do that?
      Anyway the top allround sprinter must be McKenley but why was the 200 his "weak" spot?
      Another thought, Wint had to deal with Whitfield.
      In Juantorena's day there was no Whitfield.

          I must ask you to include Asafa Powell from now because the man is about to destroy the Olympics.

            Asafa's on the list, i also forgot to mention those bad bad bad girls from the Bahamas, Sturup and the rest. And that Richards girl needs to get it all together and come run for jamaica and not the U.S.
