Tokyo Olympics 2021 - Shelly Ann Elaine and Sherika 2

Tokyo Summer Olympics 2021: Watch Jamaica Win Women’s 100m Finals

Jamaica took the three top spots in the women’s 100 meters final and it was a star performance. The Tokyo Summer Olympics 2021 saw Elaine Thompson Herah, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce,  and Sherika Jackson easily ahead of the pack and taking the games to another level.

Sherika was also looking formidable on the track as she closed down on Fraser-Pryce, very fast, almost catching her on the line; but denying any other challenges. Thompson-Herah set a new Olympic record and was at least a meter ahead of her challengers.

This proves the quality of the Jamaican runners and the women are keeping the flag raised, as they have always done, without Usain Bolt.

What is Jamaica’s Medal Count?

Jamaica increased its medal count to 8 and is ranked 19th. The women have performed very well overall; however, there is a lot of work to be done on the quality of male sprinters that are left in the post Usain Bolt era.

Check out her book The Caribbean Family

The family is the genesis of all societies. Every culture has its distinct rules by which a family is governed, and the Caribbean family is no exception. Those rules differ within each group; for the Indians, Chinese, and Africans. Making up most of the population in the Caribbean, African families have spawned several sub-units or types; some of which are unique to the African culture. This book explores each family type and their history within the Caribbean.
