It seems of late that my blog has been converted to a sports blog or an unofficial IAAF World Championship blog! But how could I not blog about this great sporting moment in Jamaica's history? The Jamaica team has certainly been performing well so far in the 2009 IAAF World Championship races so far and today was no exception!

Both our women and men 4x100m team claimed goal today, beating their rival convincingly! there was no doubt that we won those goal, no photo finish necessary! This morning started the day off on a excellent note, our women 4x100m team, comprised of: Simone Facey, Shelly-Ann Fraser, Aleen Bailey, Kerron Stewart claimed the goal medal in 42.06 seconds. Then earlier this afternoon the men 4x100m team, which had the likes of: Steve Mullings, Michael Frater, Usain Bolt, Asafa Powell, took the gold in 37.31. this 4x100m relay was like a replay of the Beijing Olympics last year, a great race to close of the day.

Congrats to the 4x100m teams, and to the entire Jamaica team, who tore up the tracks at the IAAF World Championship!

For those who want to relive or see for the first time here are the races.
