Jamaica’s athletic bosses have written to the head of the Local Organising Committee in Qatar, hoping they can provide their athletes with a suitable training site in the weeks leading up to the IAAF World Championships set for Doha in September.

There has been strong interest from Jamaica’s elite athletes in competing at the 2019 World Relays set for Yokohama, Japan on May 12 and 13.

President of the Jamaica Athletic Administrative Association Dr. Warren Blake said the dates set for the national championships will not be changed as it serves the best interests of the majority of Jamaica’s athletes.

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.

Jamaican government really wanted to host the IAAF World Relays in 2019 but it would have been too soon, Jamaica's sports minister has said.
