Jamaican diver Yona Knight-Wisdom plans to capitalize on the postponement of the 2020 Olympics but in the meantime is hopeful that he can compete in a few meets before the end of the year.

Veronica Campbell Brown has been to five Olympic Games after making her debut at the 2000 Games in Sydney, Australia.

In the 20 years since then she has won three gold medals including consecutive 200m titles at the 2004 Games in Athens and then in Beijing in 2008 as well as a sprint relay gold won in Athens.

Three silver medals and two bronze medals put her Olympic medal count at eight, making her one of the world’s most successful female sprinters in Olympic history.

However, for the 37-year-old sprint queen, qualifying for a sixth Olympics would be a nice way to bow out of what has been an illustrious career.

"It would be like icing on the cake if I'm able to run in my sixth Olympic Games because I feel like I don't have anything else to prove," said Campbell-Brown, who has also won 11 medals at the World Championships.

"But at this stage in my life and my career, running in the Olympic Games one more time would be extra special."

However, there are many obstacles in her way including Jamaica’s premier female sprinters Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Elaine Thompson as well as a crop of promising youngsters like Briana Williams, Natalliah Whyte, Jonielle Smith, and Natasha Morrison.

Fraser-Pryce, Williams, Smith and Whyte combined to win the 4x100m at the 2019 World Championships in Doha.

The biggest obstacle to VCB’s Olympic hopes is the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic that could see the 2020 Olympics being postponed or cancelled.

President of the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA) Christopher Samuda said the JOA is willing to withdraw Jamaica’s athletes from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics if, in light of the evolving Coronavirus pandemic, Japan was not able to guarantee their health and safety.

Jereem Richards, the 2017 200-metre bronze medallist said he plans to use the disappointments of his 2019 season to spur him onto success next season.
