Believe it or not we are now only 25 days from the start of the Beijing Olympic Games. Most countries have already chosen their teams and China is putting the finishing touches on their Olympic venues and plans. Jamaica’s Olympic trials was held a few weeks ago and from the placings on athletes in those trials the team was selected.
The competition was stiff and many big names didn’t make it into all the events they are good at or didn’t make the team at all.
