As I sat inside the National Stadium, watching as jubilant supporters streamed into the facility on Saturday afternoon, something said to me, it was definitely looking to be a day we will always remember. Drenched in sunshine, there was the mire of supporting colours, noise and excitement. A mega race to the line for Champs 2016 was waiting to unfold— it just didn't get any better. Truly it didn't.

Arguably two of Jamaica's best male youth athletes, Christopher “Cubby” Taylor and Jevaughn “Smashing” Matherson could break World Youth records this season. The World Youth records are held by athletes aged 17 or younger.

With a lot of championship this year for both athletes to contest, they could join the likes of Usain Bolt and Jaheel Hyde to be individual World Youth record holders.
