The Jamaica Athletic Administrative Association (JAAA) is planning to host more All Comers meets and have a camp somewhere in the Middle East in September as it confronts anticipated challenges associated with the World Championships in Qatar in 2019.

Coming off a season in which he won everything in sight, 2018 Diamond League discus champion Fedrick Dacres is confident of success in 2019 when he is expected to compete for Jamaica at the IAAF World Championships in Qatar.

If implemented, new IAAF rule changes could see the 4x400m relays run ahead of the individual event.  The debate continues to rage on regarding the potential impact on athletes.

At upcoming IAAF World Championships, the IAAF has announced plans to introduce a format change that will see the 4x400m relays take place before the individual 400m.  2004 Olympic 400m hurdles silver medallist Danny McFarlane is critical of the changes.

Rising Jamaican quarter-miler Akeem Bloomfield has revealed that he fell into a state of depression after he failed to make Jamaica’s team to the IAAF World Championships in London in 2017.

Despite performances that have announced him as one of the best 110-metre hurdlers in the world, Jamaica’s Ronald Levy, Commonwealth Gold medallist, has disappointments that keep him grounded. 

Jamaica quartermiler Shericka Jackson is admittedly thrilled with her progress in the 200m this year but is firmly focussed on using it to make a mark in her signature event, the 400m, at next year’s World Championships.

Noted track and field analyst and coach Ato Boldon has described a misunderstanding that led athletes to believe they could secure spots at the IAAF World Championships by winning at the recently concluded NACAC Championships as embarrassing for the sport.

World U20 print double champion, Briana Williams, will set her sights on making Jamaica’s senior team to the IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar next season and join forces with the likes of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Elaine Thompson.
