At the age of 24, Andrew Fisher who donned the black, green and gold during his junior years and part of his senior career for Jamaica, has now chosen to continue his career for the Asian country, Bahrain.

The young sprinter is aiming to make history by becoming the first athlete to win an individual medal for the Asian nation at the Olympics, when he competes in Rio later this year.

Asafa Powell who holds a personal best of 19.90 seconds over the 200m dating back to 2006 explained that he is learning to run the 200m again and hinted to the possibility of running the sprint double at the National Trials in June, this after winning the men’s 200m at the Jamaica International Invitational Meet inside the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica last weekend.

“Honestly I don’t remember how to run the 200, so it’s a work in progress and hopefully by national trials I can get there," Powell suggested.

Elaine Thompson showed that her world leading 100m time of 10.92s at the UTech Classic in April was no fluke when she powered her way past a world class field to win the Women’s 100 meter in 10.97s at the Jamaica International Invitational Meet at the National Stadium in Kingston Jamaica on Saturday.
