Despite being in the transitioning phase of athletics and going with no Usain Bolt, Jamaica finished in Doha with their 2nd biggest medal haul in World Championships history with 12 medals!(Compared to 13 in 2009 and 2015)

Imagine we didn’t get medals expected from Elaine Thompson and Omar McLeoud too!

However, we had our biggest showing ever in Field events. Spectacular performances by our athletes.

I think every Jamaican would agree that we could watch that race over and over again. So, here you go!

Jamaica also medalled in the Mixed 4×400m relay, the Women’s 4×400m and the men had an impressive 2nd place finish in the Men’s 4×400m relay. Suga sees our 400m male athletes on the rise, especially in our young, Akeem Bloomfield. What a first leg!

What an accomplishment for our pocket rocket, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, right?!

Suga cannot let another minute go by without Congratulating our Sprint Queen, Shelly, who won the Women’s 100m Final at the Doha World Championships in 10.71s! Her first major event after giving birth to her son, Zyon.

It is a pity Elaine Thompson could not give Jamaica the 1-2, but it has been said that her achilles tendon is acting up again with soreness. All the best to Elaine in the 200m!
