Olympics running hot on the track-July 29, 2021

Jamaicans were right to be excited when athletics started at Tokyo 2020. The women’s 100 metres began an our three runners looked awesomely good, with Elaine Thompson-Herah (10.82) and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (10.84) sizzling. Ta-Lou 10.75, Coté d’Ivoire) ran hard and looked great equalling the African record.

Fast times but were they due to the track? Some commentators thought so.

Semis to come and pot covers being readied. 👍🏾🇯🇲👏🏾

Jamaicans in the men’s 400 metres hurdles all made it through to the semis.

Just day 1 and goosebumps already.
