Cash in on 100m clash! A reader’s advice to the JAAA

The 100m for men can be expected to include no less than six participants, not including Usain Bolt, who have gone below 10 seconds this season. They are Asafa Powell, Steve Mullings, Nesta Carter, Michael Frater, Yohan Blake and Nickel Ashmeade. It should also be noted that all of these have personal bests below 9.9s, and the rest of the line-up will have persons bordering on 10s flat.

I cannot recall any 100m event at any national trials that has assembled such talent, and could easily be a big seller as a pay-per-view event at a reasonable fee with good promotion. Read the entire letter to the Gleaner Editor here>>
