  1. Remember that in Jamaica, it is more important to win champs than ensuring that athletes maximise on their potential to make themselves and their families better off in the long run. All about di winning

  2. I’m
    wondering, why is Moore still in high school? She should have started collegiate/athletics career by now. Why hasn’t she been encouraged to take up a scholarship locally or abroad?
