The varsity stadium was buzzing with black green and gold, as the Jamaica's athletes secured four Gold medals on the second day of the 3rd NACAC Senior Athletics Championships happening in Toronto, Canada.

2018 Athletics World Cup champion and Commonwealth Games Bronze medalist, Stephanie Ann Mcpherson took full control of the women's 400, leading from gun to tape, and crossed the line in 51.15s  to secure the first gold medal for Jamaica. Her teammate Christine Day, 53.04s was good enough for  fifth in that event.

Having showed good athletic versatility during her junior athletic career, former Manchester High standout and reigning NCAA Long Jump champion Chanice Porter has cut ties with the High Jump to focus solely on establishing a successful Long Jump career.

The University of Georgia athlete made the revelation on Friday night after securing another national long jump title. Porter who cut the sand at 6.59m to win the national title explained why she has parted ways with one of the events she did well in as a junior.
