  1. Very disappointed in Shellece Clark…I honestly think this girl would be challenging for a spot on Jamaica’s senior team by now. The potential showed in high school never come through. At one point I heard about a family member who got involved in her management because they think she was the next Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
    A lot of times these family members ONLY show up when things a gwaan…and want to rule the high school coaches and that is why we lose so many of our top athletes
