Natoya Goule-Toppin was honoured in her home of Top Coffee Grove (Bellefield), Manchester, Jamaica, last week.

Goule-Toppin, who has single handily carried Jamaica’s middle distance for the past few years, was honoured with the unveiling of a paved road renamed in her honour.

The new road, Natoya Goule Avenue, paved with stormwater drainage installed, carried an estimated $6.5 million tag.

Natoya Goule-Toppin told that she is “honoured knowing that I was recognized in this way.”

“I appreciate all the effort and thoughts that were put in place to make this possible,” she added.

  1. I stumbled on this by chance but I am glad I did. I love Natoya Goule from her school girl days. She is so small but she possesses the heart of a giant. She is perhaps the most under rated 800 m female runner on the international circuit as the big name countries always seem to team her out at meets. Jamaica has got to show love to champions like her and I hope this is just the beginning.
