JAMAICA ADDS SPORTS TO ITS REGGAE HISTORY (883 hits)

Jamaica, that wonderful Island in the Caribbean, for many years has established its name as one of the best countries in the world, in the fields of tourism, and above all the “Home of wonderful reggae music.”

Jamaica is the birth place of great reggae stars, including Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff, Gregory Isaacs, Joseph Hill-Culture, Desmond Decker, Beres Hammond, Burning Spear, Toots and the Maytals etc.

Apart from the reggae stars, Jamaica has produced great sprinters in the past, such as Merlene Ottey, Asafa Powell etc, yet in athletics, comparing the country to other great sports countries, such as America, Jamaica wasn’t classified as a great country in sports, until the emergence of unknown sprinter, Usain Bolt.

Usain Bolt’s unique and charismatic performance, along with team mate Yohan Blake, have established firmly that Jamaica is not only good in music but also in athletics. The 2012 Olympics games which place in London confirmed it all.
