Tokyo Olympics 2021 - Jamaica mens 4x100 meters team

Tokyo Summer Olympics 2021: Watch Jamaica in the Men’s 4×100 meters

The Jamaican men have not stepped up to pick up the mantle, from Usain Bolt or Asafa Powell, at the Summer Olympic Games 2021. Rather, they seemed to have stepped back and fallen by the wayside. However, we will continue to keep an eye on a young Seville who performed well in his semi-final race but finished fifth in the 4×100 meters final.

The Jamaican Athletics community needs to re-evaluate its succession strategies and prepare younger athletes to pick up the mantle when one generation leaves the sport. Let’s hope there are different outcomes at the World Championships.

Watch Jamaica in the Men’s 4×100 meters

Nonetheless, the day ended with excitement and unexpected outcome in the 4×100 meters races for both men and women. Jamaica won the women’s 4×100 meters and Italy gave a stunning upset and blistering finish in the men’s race.

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.
