I’ve been screaming for so long that I’ve lost my voice…I’m tired, I’m weak and I am sunburnt. Jamaica came to a standstill this morning as I was stranded in the middle of downtown Kingston while on my way to work. There was a huge outdoor screen in the middle of the town centre and that’s where a huge crowd of at last 5 thousand of my countrymen had gathered, bus drivers and taxi drivers abandoned their buses and I was going nowhere so why not join into the festivities that were just minutes away.
Usain Bolt was on show and boy did he deliver and only minutes later Melaine Walker underscored our dominance on the track at this Olympics. The funny thing is lots more medals are expected and we already top the athletics medal table!
