The Jamaican team can now account for all 47 2012 Jamaican Olympians being in London and at the Birmingham Camp.
Asafa Powell and the rest of the MVP Track club members are some of the last of the 2012 Jamaica Olympic Team to arrive at the Jamaica Olympic Camp. It is widely known that Powell is treating an injury and he has taken time out to get the best treatment and recover.
and Asafa Powell will be on top of the medal podium; if not three, they will certainly settle for two positions. Nevertheless, do not count out Powell so easily, he has been looking better than he was in the past; so long as he runs healthy and full speed through the line.
The Jamaica team captains have also been named; they are Novlene Williams-Mills, 400 metres runner and Michael Frater, 100 and 4×100 metres sprinter. Usain Bolt is said to be the flag carrier for Jamaica in the Olympic ceremony.
The ceremony will be held tomorrow July 27, 2012; however, today the Jamaican contingent will be hosting a press conference in London. Nearly 200 Interviewers and international broadcasters will be posing questions at the event coordinated by The Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association and the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA). Brigitte Foster-Hylton, Veronica Campbell-Brown, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Yohan Blake, Asafa Powell and Usain Bolt are expected to participate and answer questions.
