It was another day without medals for Jamaica at the IAAF World Championships on a wet and frigid day in London, England, but despite the lack of podium finishes for the country there were some outstanding performances from which the country will draw many positives.

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.

It is only fitting that at the Championships where he will call time on his historic and legendary career, Jamaican sprinting icon Usain Bolt will highlight day one of the IAAF World Athletics Championships which begins on Friday in London, England.

Defending Olympic champions, new contenders and several past world championship and Olympic team members, past, present and future, all met in big clashes inside the National Stadium on Friday at the ongoing Jamaica National Track & Field Championship.

There were plenty of surprise triumphs on Friday for the younger generation, but Elaine Thompson and Yohan Blake managed to secure another national title in their events.
