It was pure joy watching Omar McLeod accomplish what no other Jamaican has managed to do; he is the 100m hurdles Olympic champion, at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Mcleod dominated the event all year and was expected to perform very well. He did not disappoint and can now rest easy, for all his hard work. One could feel his overwhelming joy as he celebrated on the field. Amusingly, he seemed to be thanking Jesus – as Jamaicans do when they get something they really want – very hard.
Ortega seemed to celebrate harder than McLeod, formerly of Cuba, he now represents Spain. Orlando Ortega took a well deserved second place.
McLeod ran a brilliant race, keeping his composure even when there was pressure from the other runners.
