In the build up to the 105th staging of the annual Boys and Girls championship, it was always being promoted amongst many pundits that Monk Street, Spanish Town based, St Jago High School was in with a legitimate chance to ambush the defending champions, Edwin Allen High School and regain their hold on the girls title.

Sports has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language that they can understand. Sports can create hope where once there was only despair.

It is the amount of points accumulated at Champs that determines who stands tall at the end of each staging of the annual ISSA Boys and Girls Championship, but there is a sense of pride and accomplishment that comes with being crowned individual overall champion and also for the class in which you participate.

Fresh into his first year in Class One, Michael O’Hara was tipped to give his school valuable points in their bid for the Boys title at Champs 2014, however it went all downhill for him when he was disqualified from his 100m semi-final after picking at the start of the race.

Calabar is indeed in pole position after Day 4 of the 105th staging of the ISSA/Grace Kennedy Boys and Girls Championships.

Boasting a 23 points lead and the calibre of athletes the defending champions have in finals on Day 5, one cannot fault those who believe its over.

Supporters of a rejuvenated Kingston College believe that they can steal the title on the last day having secured quality entries in many of the finals on the last day.

Calabar's two representatives are expected to finish in the top 3 or 4 in the Javelin Open

You will know who they are when you see them, as the sign of champions is written across their faces. Young Britney Dixon and Sasha-Gay Whyte are two of the of the most humble junior track athletes you will come across.

Britnie Dixon's running style is very distinct, and when she lines up at the start line in the colours of Vere she brings back memories of former star and national record holder Inez Turner and Evette Turner, who represented their alma Mata, Vere Technical well over 25 years ago at Champs.
