  • The sad state of US sprinting and Jamaican Males

    Nobody is talking about the sad state of US sprinting. This is the worst I have seen.

    Jamaican male sprinting has dropped big time. JAAA need to organize Bolt, Shelly, VCB and Asafa to tour the island and conduct seminars to encourage youngsters to get involved and get them motivated because we need to improve.

    Sass, is motivation really the issue? Is it possible that JA dominated the male category because of one man?

        Not just one man. We had a team. Bolt was exceptional but he was also a motivator. Lazie yes it can make a different.

          Bolt forced and inspired the others to work harder. During the Bolt era, there were about 10 to 15 sprinters running 9-change regularly. Now, a sprinter running 9.90 has track fans sitting up. Jamaican male sprinters can barely go under 10 seconds nowadays.
