Bolt, Fraser-Pryce, Others In For Jamaica Big Show

Several OF the island’s top athletes, as expected, have been entered to compete at this week’s Supreme Ventures sponsored Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) National Senior Championships at the National Stadium.

The event, which serves as a qualifier for a number of senior international meets, such as the IAAF World Championships in Beijing this August, gets under way on Thursday with big names such as Usain Bolt, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Kaliese Spencer and Novlene Williams-Mills, who all have automatic entries to the World Championships as defending champions in their events or Diamond Race winners from last year, listed to compete.

Veronica Campbell-Brown, who won the sprint double in last year’s Diamond Race, is also entered to compete in both events with Fraser-Pryce, who won both sprints at the last World Championships in Moscow in 2013 trumping her wild card. Bolt has expressed concern about his flat start to the season so far with the world record holder, Olympic and world champion over 100m and 200m, admittedly worried after failing to spark in any of his four individual races so far this season.
