Sprint relay sweep at CARIFTA Games 2011

Unlike Saturday night when they were tested in the individual sprints by arch-rivals The Bahamas, it was all Jamaica on Sunday night at the Montego Bay Sports Complex, St James, as the local athletes swept the sprint relays to take a stranglehold on the LIME Carifta Games.

“It was exactly what we expected,” said Keith Wellington, head of delegation for the 70-strong Jamaica squad. “Our target was to get at least 70 medals, and I believe we are well on our way to doing that.”

  • I must admit to agreeing with you George, on the taking of the high moral road. But the present is what it is, no matter how it got that way, and the unsettling question is, as Scott ask’s, who is going to fill the vacuum and take control when, not if, Mubarak is forced out?? I can’t help thinking of the Shah of Iran being replaced with that fanatical lunatic the Iotolla(sp?) and even Saddam Hussein brings forth the question, is Iraq any better off . If I remember correctly, George Bush senior did not take advantage of the devastation of Iraq in Desert Storm to remove Saddam. First and foremost, he did not have that mandate, but his other reason was the troubling question, ( which by the way is the same question Scott has brought up re Egypt ), who would take his place? We know what happened – Saddam was spared. How about the situation in Afganistan? Did not the US, some time ago, help them defeat the Russians and supported Ben Laden which brought about the training camp that brought about the tragic and infamous bombing of the Trade Centre Towers? Oh well, I’m too dumb to solve all these problems so I’ll leave it to God, He’s ultimately in controll anyway. Bill G.

  • Uncle Bill, it is not our place to decide. We must stop thinking only about our foriegn interests and abide by the wishes of the citizenry. We are hated and mistrusted by the Arab world because of our shenanigans in the name of America’s best interest. We must stop.
