Dubbed Flying Friday by the organizers, the fourth and penultimate day of the ISSA/Grace Kennedy Boys and Girls Championships was a thrilling affair that produced some sizzling action in the sprints, middle distance and in the field. Five records were broken with a plethora of outstanding performances seen from the youngsters.

Jamaica College’s Obrien Wasome is a man who seemingly has everything he wanted at the 2015 ISSA/Grace Kennedy Boys and Girls Championships, but the Long Jumper and Triple Jumper admits he won’t be content until he has his hands on another double title – something he hopes to achieve in 2016. He leapt 7.71m and 16.24m to win the long Jump and Triple Jump respectively in 2015.
