Omar McLeod lifted the gloom in the Jamaican camp on Monday when he won gold in the men’s 110m hurdle final at the IAAF World Championships in London. Following two days of despair where both Usain bolt and Elaine Thompson had failed to land expected gold medals, it was left up to the Olympic Champion to deliver the goods.

With no sponsors, structured training group or team, Ricardo Cunningham has only had a vision and dream and that is what drove him to finishing third at the just concluded Jamaica Administrative Athletic Associations (JAAA) 2017 National Athletic Championships in the 400m hurdles.
