JUNE – MONTH BEFORE THE REMATCH – 2022

June is speed month. Stars will put their Head, uniform, and Track shoes on. It is the month before Track and Field Rematch between Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Shericka Jackson at World Championships 2022. Some Stars are not ready but they are getting there. Elaine Thompson-Herah (ETH) is the Fastest Woman Alive but that does not mean she will always win in June. Regardless of what transpires in June, she is the Fastest Woman Alive.  

In Rome, Shericka Jackson ran the 200M in a time of 21.91. That is a good step forward for her season. Pundits and naysayers should remember that Shericka Jackson can run faster. Her performance sends a strong message regarding expectations for the 200M event at World Championships 2022. To Pundits and naysayers who like to bash ETH, sending a warning will require a minimum time of 21.51.

There will be lots of Fans chatter such as; we think ETH will destroy the Field again, or we think Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce is going to defend her World Championship Title, or we think Shericka Jackson is getting tired of being third Fiddler and generate an upset. All results are possible if you believe.

Which Star will be the Phantom of the Opera? Will Gabby Thomas impose her will and be a World Championships Track and Field party crasher. Will Mboma experience a miracle and make an appearance. We will just have to wait and see. Whatever!!! The Five – Elaine, Shelly, Shericka, Gabby, and Christine Mboma will be factors. World Championships 2022, as it pertains to Women sprints, will revolve around the FIVE

Fans are in anticipation of a rematch between Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Shericka Jackson at World Athletic Championships 2022 in Eugene, Oregon. Elaine will keep focus on the prize and stay hungry. Fans anticipate Elaine will be ready to perform at World Athletic Championships 2022, July 15 to July 24.

Athletes planning to be in the Women 100M Final in Oregon with a Personal Best (PB) slower than 10.7X should STAY HOME or skip the event. Participating in the event with a PB south of 10.7X, will make you late for Dinner, where Dinner is the Gold Medal. The Women 100M Final in Oregon 2022 is on Track for a Time of 10.47 or better. The Women 200M Final in Oregon 2022 is on Track for a Time of 21.5 or better The Tail Gate Party has begun.

LEAVE GRANDMA’S CHILD ALONE

The Pundits and naysayers are looking for a story. Here is all you need to know. Elaine Thompson-Herah is the Fastest Woman Alive. That does not mean she will always win but for now she is the Fastest Woman Alive.

The notion that Elaine Thompson-Herah Verbiage needs an upgrade is preposterous. Any expressed or implied notion that she now needs to be a “Fulbright” scholar is nonsense to the Nth degree. She is not a Rhodes Scholar and do not care to be anymore.  

Sorry, Elaine Thompson-Herah never promised you a Rose Garden. When you critics, can run the 100M in 10.61seconds and give the impression that a time of 10.31 was possible, if no Left Arm salute, perhaps we will acknowledge your collective presence. Until then, Fans of Elaine Thompson-Herah will not dignify the “Dirty Remarks“. We Fans will fight if we find it necessary.

From now until after Olympics – 2024, Elaine Thompson-Herah will deliver signature performances to your eyes. Pundits and Naysayers will be escorted to the side and relegated to the Peanut gallery. Fans are in anticipation of a rematch between Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Shericka Jackson at World Athletic Championships 2022 in Eugene, Oregon. Fans anticipate Elaine will be ready to perform at World Athletic Championships 2022, July 15 to July 24.

Athletes planning to be in the Women’s 100M Finals in Oregon with a Personal Best (PB) slower than 10.7X should skip the event. Participating in the event with a PB south of 10.7X, will make you late for Dinner. The Women 100M Final in Oregon 2022 is on Track for a Time of 10.47 or better. The mission for Elaine Thompson-Herah is to continue moving forward and make Jamaica Proud. She will avoid and ignore envious Pundits and naysayers. The Tail Gate Party has begun.

MAY – PSYCHOLOGICAL PREPARATION

May is the month of Psychological or Mental preparation for World Athletic Championships 2022. Regardless of Physical shape, Track and Field Stars and competitors will need to be mentally ready. You cannot run your best without your head. Athletes with the proper mental focus will succeed at World Championships 2022.

Fans are excited with the performances of their Track and Field Stars during Easter. Easter Eggs hunting was successful. Early Season performances sent messages to competitors. Fans are in anticipation that Track and Field Season 2022 will be competitive. Some Athletes are exploring different events to confirm or discover their true talent.

The 2022 Athletic season will be interesting. Fans are pleading with Stars to avoid Indoor competition. Avoid feet and Achilles heel injury for the next three years. Indoor 60M competition is of no significance to the ultimate 100M event at World Athletic Championships 2022. The psychological preparation and sending messages to competitors by way of performances and trash talk is in high gear. Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce is promising to run 10.4X for the Women’s 100M. She ran 10.67 in Nairobi, Kenya, which is great. However, let us remember the Leading Time is 10.54, ran in Oregon by Elaine Thompson Herah in 2021.

There is no holding back or keeping anything in Reserve when running the 100M and 200M. Leave it all on the Track. Let your competitors listen for the Gun and you watch the Feet. The moment a competitor’s foot is off Blocks, you BOOGIE. Stars should remember to treat competitors with respect. The competitive conduct in Track is “Good morning”, “Good afternoon”, and “Good Night” – Meet me at the Tape.

Meanwhile, Christine Mboma had an unfortunate injury in Nairobi, Kenya. Track and Field fans are concerned. Will she recuperate in time for World Championships 2022? Those of us who Love the Sport are not happy. Christine’s injury could put a damper on the Meet. She might not be meeting anyone at the Tape.

Fans are curious about the unexpected departure of Elaine Thompson – Herah from the USATF Golden Games or Mt SAC as most of us call it. However, if Elaine wishes to have an easy start to the season, nothing to Fuss and Fight about.

Fans are in anticipation of a rematch between Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Shericka Jackson at World Athletic Championships 2022 in Eugene, Oregon. Despite the presumed lack of experience of her new coaches, Fans anticipate Elaine will be ready to perform at World Athletic Championships 2022, July 15 to July 24.

Athletes planning to be in the Women’s 100M Finals in Oregon with a Personal Best (PB) slower than 10.7X should STAY HOME or skip the event. Participating in the event with a PB south of 10.7X, will make you late for Dinner. The Women 100M Final in Oregon 2022 is on Track for a Time of 10.47 or better. The Tail Gate Party has begun.

Gabby Thomas has decided to compete in the 100M early in the Season but Fans of Gabrielle Thomas are not keen on her ability to be a Star in the 100M. Her Athletic history seems best suited for the 200M. Gabrielle Thomas can be a star in the 400M event if she studies this race. Fans saw her compete in a 300M event in New York in February 2022. We think her future in the 400M looks promising. Regardless she will compete.

Shericka Jackson appears to be having a slow start to the season but nothing to be nervous about. Fans believe that Shericka should review the Tape of this race and consider re-engineering her finish in the 200M event. Flash Thought, is Shericka Jackson considering competing in the 100M and 400M and relax her interest in the 200M. That would be an interesting mix of events for an Athlete. Regardless, the psychological preparation begins in the month of May, speed will be on display in June, and Athleticism will be ready for Prime Time in July.

BeyondApparent.com began touting and showing interest in Track and Field with special focus on Elaine Thompson Herah, Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce, and Shericka Jackson. Since then we discovered Gabrielle Thomas and Christine Mboma. These five Athletes are “Simply the Best” in Track and Field today.

TRACK AND FIELD STARS SEARCH FOR EASTER EGGS

Fans hope their Track and Field Stars will find Easter Eggs. In essence, Fans are in anticipation that Stars will deliver Early Season performances that will send a message to competitors.

Elaine Thompson-Herah will keep focus on the prize and stay hungry. If training is somewhat regimented and structured, preparation should be fine. Despite the presumed lack of experience of her new coaches, Fans anticipate Elaine will be ready to perform at World Athletic Championships 2022, July 15 to July 24. While Elaine Thompson-Herah is expected to run 400M repetitions in Training, Fans are not interested in seeing any Public performance. Fans do not want to see their Star exposed or embarrassed. The 400M is not her Event.

Three-Peat and 123 is very much a possibility at the Paris Olympics – 2024. Fans of Elaine Thompson – Herah believe she can win the 100M and 200M for a third consecutive time at the Paris Olympics – 2024. As for 123 – Fans envision the expected three (3) Jamaican entrants in the Women’s 100M Final in Paris, to finish 1, 2, 3, and stake Flag on Podium, regardless of the names associated with the entrants.

The 2022 Athletic season is about to get interesting. Fans are pleading with the Stars to avoid Indoor competition. Avoid feet and Achilles heel injury for the next three years. Indoor 60M competition is of no significance to the ultimate 100M event at World Athletic Championships 2022. Watch the 60M races and notice Elaine is catching up at the 60M mark, and about to dust people up in the next 40 meters. If Elaine, Shelly, and Shericka have a slow start to the season, nothing to be nervous about. The psychological preparation begins in the month of May, speed will be on display in June, and Athleticism will be ready for Prime Time in July.

World Athletic Championships – 2022 should be entertaining. There is a possibility that Elaine Thompson – Herah will run 10.47 and 21.2 for the 100M and 200M respectively. Fans anticipate Shericka Jackson will join the 100M 10.6X club. A review of Olympics 2021 and Prefontaine Classic 2021 show Shericka Jackson closing fast at the end of each race. This is confirmation that Shericka Jackson is making progress with her Speed.

Some athletes could have a career-challenging year in 2022. For example if Shacari Richardson finds it difficult to beat 123, she may not participate in World Athletic Championships – 2022. Will Christine Mboma get faster and allowed to compete in the 400M? Gabby Thomas has decided to compete in the 100M but Fans of Gabrielle Thomas are not keen on her ability to be a Star in the 100M. Her Athletic history seems best suited for the 200M. Gabrielle Thomas can be a star in the 400M event if she studies this race. Regardless she will compete.

From now until after Olympics 2024, it is unlikely that Shacari Richardson will beat anyone on the Women 100M podium in Tokyo Olympics 2021. She can keep dreaming. Fans do not see Shacari Richardson winning a 200M on the world stage. Elaine Thompson – Herah, Gabby Thomas, and Christine Mboma will deny her the opportunity to be at the top of any Podium. Fans are waiting for Natasha Morrison to step forward. With some Positive vibration, she could be the next Burning Spear. The young’uns are coming and showing interest in Field events.

REMATCH AND REDO

Elaine Thompson – Herah (ETH), presumably has two new Coaches, Derron Herah, and Bert Cameron. Who are they, what is their Track and Field experience? Can they train an exceptional female athlete? Derron Herah has some Track and Field experience but not a Star or Household name.  Bert Cameron was successful in his own right as a 400M talent. Athletes who were not Household Names are often good Coaches. Therefore, Fans will step out on the Limb and anticipate a successful campaign for both men. The first opportunity to Grade will be at World Athletic Championships 2022.

Rematch: Fans are in anticipation of a rematch between Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Shericka Jackson at World Athletic Championships 2022 in Eugene, Oregon. Elaine will keep focus on the prize and stay hungry. If training is somewhat regimented and structured, preparation should be fine. Despite the presumed lack of experience of her new coaches, Fans anticipate Elaine will be ready to perform at World Athletic Championships 2022, July 15 to July 24.

The Athletic season starts in February. Fans are pleading with the Stars to avoid Indoor competition. Avoid feet and Achilles heel injury for the next three years. Even if Elaine, Shelly, and Shericka have a slow start to the season, nothing to be nervous about they will hit their stride by April in time to search for Easter Eggs. The psychological preparation begins in the month of May, speed will be on display in June, and Athleticism will be ready for Prime Time in July.

Athletes planning to be in the Women 100M Finals in Oregon with a Personal Best (PB) slower than 10.7X should STAY HOME or skip the event. Participating in the event with a PB south of 10.7X, will make you late for Dinner. The Women 100M Final in Oregon 2022 is on Track for a Time of 10.47 or better. The Tail Gate Party has begun.

World Athletic Championships – 2022 should be entertaining. There is a possibility that Elaine Thompson – Herah will run 10.47 and 21.2 for the 100M and 200M respectively. Fans anticipate Shericka Jackson will join the 100M 10.6X club. A review of Olympics 2021 and Prefontaine Classic 2021 show Shericka Jackson closing fast at the end of each race. This is confirmation that Shericka Jackson is making progress with her Speed. There is work required on her start. Start is not limited to getting out of the Blocks it includes forward progress by or about 30 Meters into the 100M and 200M events.

Some athletes could have a career-challenging year in 2022. For example if Shacari Richardson finds it difficult to beat 123, she may not participate in World Athletic Championships – 2022. Will Christine Mboma get faster and allowed to compete in the 400M? Will Gabby Thomas decide to compete in the 100M? Fans of Gabrielle Thomas are not keen on her ability to be a Star in the 100M. Her Athletic history seems best suited for the 200M. Gabrielle Thomas can be a star in the 400M event if she studies this race. Regardless she will compete.

Redo: Natoya Goule is a Fan favorite. She has a chance to redo her attempt to deliver victory. Despite a disappointing performance in Tokyo, she is still highly regarded in the 800M event. While she did not make the Podium in Tokyo, Fans believe she has a Championship run in her. It could well be in the 800M Final at World Athletic Championships – 2022.

Goule should be ready to win the 800M at World Athletic Championships – 2022. It is refreshing to see an athlete step away and establish a new frontier. She is a Burning Spear. She will be a force to reckon with. Her mission is to stay away from the Lead, and maintain striking distance until the last 100M. Will she accept the mission? Your guess is as good as her Fans.

WOMEN TRACK AND FIELD BEYOND OLYMPICS 2021

Times are changing. Athletes are relocating or changing Camps and affiliation. Perhaps, Athletes should change coaches every Eight (8) years or after two (2) Olympic Cycles. This will give Athletic Pundits additional material to write. Arguably, 2016 – 2024 will be the Era of Elaine Thompson – Herah. Despite taking a presumed Sabbatical in 2017 – 2020, one cannot refute her Dominance in the Women 100M and 200M events and the difference she makes on a 4 X100M Relay Squad.

Olympics 2021 and Prefontaine Classic 2021 is History. Up next of significance is World Athletic Championships – 2022. Fans envision another 123 in the Women 100M event. If the Cast of characters is the same and Elaine, Shelly, and Shericka are healthy, then it is possible. World Athletic Championships could be considered a redundancy but it is good for the Sport of Track and Field. Monetarily, it is good for Athletes of the Caliber we saw in Tokyo Olympics 2021. Fans will enjoy seeing another 123 performance and greedy enough to request repeats, the equivalent of refills at the Soda Fountain.

World Athletic Championships – 2022 should be entertaining. There is a possibility that Elaine Thompson – Herah will run 10.47 and 21.2 for the 100M and 200M respectively. Fans anticipate Shericka Jackson will join the 100M 10.6X club. A review of Olympics 2021 and Prefontaine Classic 2021 show Shericka Jackson closing fast at the end of each race.

Will Christine Mboma get faster and allowed to compete in the 400M? Will Gabby Thomas decide to compete in the 100M? Fans of Gabrielle Thomas are not keen on her ability to be a Star in the 100M and the 400M events. Her Athletic history seems best suited for the 200M. Gabrielle Thomas can be a star in the 400M event if she studies this race. Regardless she will compete.

Olympics 2024 should be exciting. The French Athletes will bring their best Game but not likely to be as good as this 400M Performance. Fans of Elaine Thompson – Herah yearn for Signature Performances at the Paris Olympics – 2024. Gauntlet down, Fans anticipate 10.47 for the 100M and 21.2 for the 200M or better. The Spear should burn in Paris. Should the gods of Athletic Health smile, Elaine Thompson – Herah, will perform at an extremely high level and make Jamaica proud. All 100M finalist in Paris know in advance, that if their Personal Best (PB) is south of 10.7X, they will be late for Dinner where dinner is the Gold Medal.

Three-Peat and 123 is very much a possibility at the Paris Olympics – 2024. Three-Peat – Fans of Elaine Thompson – Herah believe she can win the 100M and 200M for a third consecutive time at the Paris Olympics – 2024.123 – Fans envision the expected three (3) Jamaican entrants in the Women’s 100M Final in Paris, to finish 1, 2, 3, and stake Flag on the Podium, regardless of the names associated with the entrants.

TAKEAWAY PREFONTAINE CLASSIC 2021- WOMEN 100M

Women 100M event at the Prefontaine classic 2021 saw another Signature Performance by Elaine Thompson-Herah. Frankly, if the Women 100M was the only event at Prefontaine classic 2021, Fans would have been satisfied.

What in tarnation was Shacari Richardson doing? Any High School Athlete could have produced that fake performance. Those of us who have personal reference to Track and Field know that Shacari Richardson mailed it in. If there is any sport you should not hype, it is Track and Field. Exaggerating capability in track and field will embarrass an athlete. Especially, if said athlete embellished in the façade. Thanks to Teahna Daniels for putting up a fight.

The Tokyo 100M Podium did not disappoint the fans. If you had any doubt that Elaine, Shelly, and Shericka were for real, 123 were happy you attended the Prefontaine classic 2021. It was a memorable and incomparable Post Olympics performance.

Elaine, Shelly, and Shericka quietly came to town with every intention of giving the fans some excitement for their time and money. They rolled out the script – good morning, good afternoon, and good night – “meet me at the tape”. Post event interview by Shacari Richardson was preposterous at best. She needs to chill and apologize to her fans. Anymore bellicose utterance could prompt her fans to walk away.

Fact is the Tokyo 100M podium is so much better than shacari Richardson. Overall, Elaine, Shelly, and Shericka will continue to have her number. How many people saw Shelly smiling over the shoulder of Shacari Richardson during her interview? Priceless. Elaine, Shelly, and Shericka should take a break for the rest of the year unless they have contractual obligations.

The preparation for World Championships – 2022 has begun. Fans believe Elaine Thompson – Herah can run 10.47 for the 100M and 21.2 for the 200M. Those times will further cement her name in the IOC Annals and Track and Field hall of fame. Expectations are Elaine will probably do both times in Paris, especially if fans sneak up at the Starting Line and tell her the Germans are coming.

From now until after Olympics 2024, it is unlikely that Shacari Richardson will beat anyone who was on the Women 100M podium in Tokyo Olympics 2021. She can keep dreaming. Fans do not see Shacari Richardson winning a 200M on the world stage. Gabby Thomas and Christine Mboma will deny her the opportunity to be at the top of any Podium. Fans believe that Natasha Morrison is ready to step forward. With some Positive vibration, she could be the next Burning Spear. Let us know what you think at BeyondApparent.com

THE 10.6 ERA HAS ARRIVED

In a previous Article, I said that in Tokyo 2021 the Women’s 100M could be won in a Time of 10.61. Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce has shown that Time is possible. Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce is doing very well. Twenty-Twenty (2020) was an excellent year. She continues to do well in Jamaica Female Track and Field. Absent injuries she is the favorite to win the Women 100M in Tokyo. Her performances look Exceptional. She had a strong outing in Doha 2019.  Her recent performances were impressive.

If you are a Female Track and Field Athlete intending to be in the 100M Finals in Tokyo and your Personal Best (PB) is slower than 10.8, STAY HOME or skip the event. It will be more difficult in 2024. In 2024, expectations are the winning time in the Women’s 100M Final will be 10.5.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is a Vanguard for Jamaican Female Track and Field. Wish her well in Tokyo 2021. We thought she would retire after Olympics 2016 but was incorrect. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is back. She came, she saw, and conquered. She performed victoriously, hugged competitors, shook hands, and prepares for more challenges. Despite apparent dominance, she remains respectful and conducts herself as Class Citizen of the International Olympic Community.

In 2008, 2012, 2016, and 2017 we saw the best athletes on the planet participate in three Olympics and three World Championships. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce performed at an extremely high level, displaying her talent and making Jamaica proud. Team Jamaica Track and Field landscape is poised for a changing of the Guard, after Olympics 2021

Moving forward it will be difficult to make it to the Olympics representing Jamaica in the 100M event – Female and Male. The Era of Speed Merchants is well on the way. Men and Women who can run fast will migrate and some will change Nationality in pursuit of their Sprint dream. They will become Track and Field Mercenaries.

JAMAICA 2021 OLYMPIC TRIALS

COVID-19 caused the rescheduling of Olympics 2020 but Athletics is essential. Sports Fans look forward to seeing Olympic caliber Athletes perform, especially those who compete in Track and Field events including the Marathon. Since there are many events occurring in the world, from the Caribbean to South China Sea, let us give a shout out to all Athletes preparing to perform in the Tokyo 2021 Olympics. The event is scheduled for July 23 to August 8 2021 but is still not a certainty. There are Geo-Political issues in the Region that could have an impact on the event.

There is hope all Athletes despite the impact of COVID-19 were able to keep themselves mentally and physically fit. Athletes, who participated in the Diamond League, did well in preparing to be Olympians. If your performance is not good enough, get busy and be psychologically prepared. Let us look at the performance and potential of Athletes who performed in the Jamaica 2021 Olympic Trials. There is Local opposition to the staging of Olympics 2021. Regardless the Athletes in Japan are ready.

Previously the prevailing thought was Jamaica could win about nine medals but base on the performances in the 2021 Olympic Trials, a review of Expectations might be necessary. The following is my expectations of prominent Jamaican athletes as well as some New Faces.

FEMALE: Natoya Goule, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Remona Burchell, Gayon Evans, Elaine Thompson, Stephanie-Ann McPherson, Aisha Praught – Leer, Jeanine Williams, Danielle Williams, Shanieka Ricketts, Kimberly Williams, Danniel Thomas-Dodd, Tiffany James, Sada Williams, Megan Simmons, Aalliyah Francis, Natalliah Whyte, Veronica Campbell Brown, Brianna Williams, Shericka Jackson, and Anastasia Le-Roy.

Elaine Thompson performance in the 2021 Olympic Trials was impressive. Expectations are Elaine Thompson will be a contender in Tokyo 2021 Olympics. Her performance in Rio 2016 was exceptional. She is one of the few Female athletes who can run the 100M in less than 11.00 seconds. She has also proven that she can run the 200M in less than 22.00 seconds. Expectations are she will perform well in Olympics 2021. Winning the Women’s 100M will require a time of less than 11.0 seconds, probably about 10.61.

Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce is doing very well. Twenty-Twenty (2020) was an excellent year for Shelly. She continues to do well in Jamaica Female Track and Field. Absent injuries she is the favorite to win the Women 100M. Her performances look Exceptional. She had a wonderful outing in Doha 2019 and continues to perform at a High Level. Her performance in the 2021 Olympic Trials was impressive.  

Shericka Jackson is a Class act Jamaican sprinter specializing in the 400 meters. She won the bronze medal at the 2015 and 2019 World Championships and at the 2016 Summer Olympics in the 400 m event. The 100 meters is not her event.

Natoya Goule is a star. She will be a force to reckon with in Japan. She needs to exhibit more confidence at the start Line and wave with a little exuberance. Despite finishing sixth in Doha 2019, she continues to improve her performance in the 800 Meters. Goule will be ready to win the 800 Meters at Olympics 2021. She might make more Videos after. It is refreshing to see an athlete step away and establish a new frontier. She is a Burning Spear.

Remona Burchell has potential but base on performance in the recent Olympic Trials, it is unlikely she will be on the Podium in Olympics 2021. Base on her accolades competitive performance was expected. Her challenge is can she run faster than 11.03 seconds for the 100M. Her 200M performance of 23.92 is hopeful. However, making the Team might be a Game-Time decision.

Gayon Evans has potential specifically in the 200M. Perhaps she should focus on that event. 23.18 seconds is a good time. If she can run faster than 23.0, she will be a contender. She appeared to be maintaining form in 2019.

Stephanie-Ann McPherson is still near the top of the 400M runners list. Olympics 2021 might be her final quest for Olympic stardom.  She appeared to be maintaining form in 2019 and should be a contender.

Aisha Praught-Leer should improve on her 2018 Commonwealth Games accomplishments. There are expectations of strong performances in all or whichever event she decides to run. She is also a Classic Nerd and Olympics 2021 could be her final quest for Olympic stardom

Jeanine Williams will be a force to reckon with in the 100M hurdles. She should focus on that event. The 100 meter will be a challenge. There is a possibility she might earn a spot on the 4×100 meter relay team. She is the epitome of a Student Athlete. Olympics 2021 might be her final quest for Olympic stardom.

Danielle Williams is also a force to reckon with in the 100M hurdles. She had great performances in the Diamond League in 2019 and an exceptional performance in Doha. Hang on to your Hats!!! Women’s 100M Hurdles will be hot, get your Tickets now, but brace yourself for a refund. Make-up Tokyo 2021 Olympics is not a certainty.

Shanieka Ricketts should do well in the Triple Jump. One expects improvement since the North American, Central American, Caribbean Championships, and Doha 2019. Olympics 2021 might be her best year for Olympic stardom.

Kimberly Williams is an excellent Triple Jump athlete. However, the Olympics and World Championships have not seen her best performances. Perhaps, 2021 will be the year. The fans certainly hope she makes the Team.

Danniel Thomas-Dodd is ready to take her performance to another level. There is an expectation of improvement since 2018 Commonwealth Games. The competition will be fierce but she can win. Her performance in Doha 2019 is setting the stage. Her training technique and Public Relations presence is excellent.

Tiffany James appears to have some work to do base on recent competition. It will be interesting to see if she can handle performing as an individual in the 400M. Performance at the junior level is recognized but the Olympics stage is more challenging. Regardless she should be competitive.

Anastasia Leroy has exhibited solid performances and has additional potential. For Anastasia the time is now and a strong performance is expected. Despite finishing sixth in Doha 2019, there is still time to be ready for Olympics 2021.

The following is my expectations of prominent Jamaican Male athletes at Olympics 2021.

MALE: Oblique Seville, Kimar Farquharson, Christopher Taylor, Nesta Carter, Yohan Blake, Omar McLeod, Javon Francis, Nathon Allen, Demish Gaye, Tajay Gayle, Ronald Levy, Clive Pullen, O’Dayne Richards, Fedrick Dacres, Traves Smikle, Jermaine Gayle, and Rusheen McDonald.

Yohan Blake did not have a good outing in the 2018 Commonwealth Games. His performance in Doha 2019 did not meet expectations. Olympics 2021 is definitely time for Yohan Blake to perform at his best in the 100M and 200M. The stage is set for Yohan to have solid performances. There is only so much continuous running in the legs of a Professional sprinter. At some point between Training and competing, the body gets tired even if the brain does not. Yohan Blake is approaching that point. He will participate in the 2021 Olympics and then retire. Suffice to say, no athlete is winning the Men’s 100M in Olympics 2021 unless he runs the distance in less than 10.0 seconds.

Omar McLeod continues to impress. His performances have created renewed interest in the 110M Hurdles. The 110M Hurdles is an event in which Jamaican Athletes should excel. Doha 2019 was a defeat but there is still time for Omar to bounce back. Until Omar is defeated at the Olympics, he owns that event. It is time to get ready for Olympics 2021. He has support in his consideration to compete in the 400M Hurdles. However, I have yet to see a recent performance in that event.

Javon Francis appears to be staying in shape. Staying in shape will prevent a repeat of this kind of performance. Will 2021 be the year he talks to the man in the mirror? Will 2021 be the year he rebounds?

Nathon Allen showed promise in 2017 but in 2018, he appeared to falter. Perhaps, there was something lacking in his training regiment. He should be able to resolve the matter and return rejuvenated.

Demish Gaye ran a respectable time of 44.55 for the 400M in World Championships 2017. He ran a competitive time of 44.83 in the Jamaica Senior trials 2019. He has some work to do but he is capable. The way forward is clear. If he can reduce his time to between 43.5 and 43.9 seconds, he will be in the discussion for a medal in Olympics 2021. That will change the narrative of the conspicuously absent Jamaicans in the 400M finals at the Olympics.

Tajay Gayle looks exceptional at the Long Jump. Olympics 2021 is definitely the year for him to continue demonstrating his talent. He looked exceptional in Doha 2019.

Ronald Levy is the Athlete with the best potential to challenge Omar McLeod. He has excellent technique and speed. He is at his prime for the 110M Hurdles. The 2021 Olympics, is definitely the year for him to demonstrate he is a superior athlete in that event.

O’Dayne Richards should be competitive in the shot put and discus throw. He should be able to give a good account of himself in both events. Along with Fedrick Dacres and Traves Smikle, the Men’s Field events squad should Medal at Olympics 2021. If Doha is an indication, Hardware is expected.

Jermaine Gayle still has time to come in from the cold. Excellent performance in the 400M event will require men who will consistently run between 43.01 and 44.5 and women who will consistently run between 48.0 and 49.4. This is a serious challenge. The 400M race is the most exhausting of the sprints.

Rusheen McDonald should be competitive in the 400M sprint. Regardless of any performances not seen in 2021, if he improves on his Personal Best of 43.93, he should make the Team.

I wish them all, HAPPY OLYMPICS. WIN, LOSE, OR DRAW!!!

UNFORGOTTEN CHAMPIONS

COVID-19 caused the rescheduling of Olympics 2020 but Athletics is essential. Sports Fans look forward to seeing Olympic caliber Athletes perform, especially those who compete in Track and Field events including the Marathon. Since there is a lot happening in the world from the Caribbean to South China Sea, this is an appropriate time to give a shout out to all Athletes expecting to perform in the make-up Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The event is scheduled for July 23 to August 8 2021 but still not a certainty.

There is hope all Athletes kept themselves mentally and physically fit. Athletes, who participated in the Diamond League, did well in preparing to be an Olympian. If your performance is not good enough, get busy and be psychologically prepared by January 2021. Consistent with expectations, let us look at the performance and potential of Athletes on the Jamaican Team. YOU ARE ALL UNFORGOTTEN CHAMPIONS. The Jamaican Team could win about nine medals. The following is my expectations of prominent Jamaican athletes, starting with the Females.

FEMALE: Natoya Goule, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Remona Burchell, Gayon Evans, Elaine Thompson, Stephanie-Ann McPherson, Aisha Praught – Leer, Jeanine Williams, Danielle Williams, Shanieka Ricketts, Kimberly Williams, Danniel Thomas-Dodd, Tiffany James, and Anastasia Leroy.

Congrats, to Elaine Thompson now married with new name Elaine Thompson Herah. Expectations are Elaine Thompson will be a contender in Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Her performance in Rio 2016 was exceptional. She is one of the few Female athletes who can run the 100M with regularity, in less than 11.00 seconds. She has also proven that she can run the 200M in less than 22.00 seconds. Expectations are she will perform well in Olympics 2020. Winning the Women’s 100M will require a time of less than 11.0 seconds, probably about 10.61.

Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce is doing very well. Twenty-Twenty (2020) was an excellent year for Shelly. Absent injuries she is the favorite to win the Women 100M. Shelly-Ann Fraser- Pryce continues to do well in Jamaican Female Track and Field. Her performances look Exceptional. She had a wonderful outing in Doha 2019 and continues to perform at a High Level.

Natoya Goule is a star. She will be a force to reckon with in Japan. She needs to exhibit more confidence at the start Line and wave with a little exuberance. Despite finishing sixth in Doha 2019, she continues to improve her performance in the 800 Meters. Goule will be ready to win the 800 Meters at Olympics 2020. It is refreshing to see an athlete step away and establish a new frontier. She is a Burning Spear.

Remona Burchell has potential that could surface in Olympics 2020. Base on her accolades competitive performance is expected. Her challenge is can she run faster than 11.03 seconds for the 100M. Her 200M performance of 23.92 is hopeful. One is in search of performances since 2018.

Gayon Evans has potential specifically in the 200M. Perhaps she should focus on that event. 23.18 seconds is a good time. If she can run faster than 23.0, she will be a contender. She appeared to be maintaining form in 2019.

Stephanie-Ann McPherson is still near the top of the 400M runners list. Olympics 2020 might be her final quest for Olympic stardom.  She appeared to be maintaining form in 2019 and will be a contender.

Aisha Praught-Leer should improve on her 2018 Commonwealth Games accomplishments. There are expectations of strong performances in all or whichever event she decides to run. She is also a Classic Nerd and Olympics 2020 could be her final quest for Olympic stardom. 

Jeanine Williams will be a force to reckon with in the 100M hurdles. She should focus on that event. The 100 meter will be a challenge. There is a possibility she might earn a spot on the 4×100 meter relay team. She is the epitome of a Student Athlete. Olympics 2020 might be her final quest for Olympic stardom.

Danielle Williams is also a force to reckon with in the 100M hurdles. She had great performances in the Diamond League in 2019 and an exceptional performance in Doha. Hang on to your Hats!!! Women’s 100M Hurdles will be hot, get your Tickets now, but brace yourself for a refund. Make-up Tokyo 2020 Olympics is not a certainty.

Shanieka Ricketts should do well in the Triple Jump. One expects improvement since the North American, Central American, Caribbean Championships, and Doha 2019. Olympics 2020 in 2021 might be her best year for Olympic stardom.

Kimberly Williams is an excellent Triple Jump athlete. However, the Olympics and World Championships have not seen her best performances. Perhaps, 2020 will be the year. The fans certainly hope she does.

Danniel Thomas-Dodd is ready to take her performance to another level. There is an expectation of improvement since 2018 Commonwealth Games. The competition will be fierce but she can win. Her performance in Doha 2019 is setting the stage. Her training technique and Public Relations presence is excellent.

Tiffany James appears to have some work to do base on recent competition. It will be interesting to see if she can handle performing as an individual in the 400M. Performance at the junior level is recognized but the Olympics stage is more challenging. Regardless she will be competitive.

Anastasia Leroy has exhibited solid performances and has additional potential. For Anastasia the time is now and a strong performance is expected. Despite finishing sixth in Doha 2019, there is still time to be ready for Olympics 2020.

The following is my expectations of prominent Jamaican Male athletes at Olympics 2020.

MALE: Yohan Blake, Everton Clarke, Omar McLeod, Javon Francis, Nathon Allen, Demish Gaye, Tajay Gayle, Ronald Levy, Clive Pullen, O’Dayne Richards, Fedrick Dacres, Traves Smikle, Andre Clarke, Jermaine Gayle, and Rusheen McDonald.

Yohan Blake did not have a good outing in the 2018 Commonwealth Games. His performance in Doha 2019 did not meet expectations. Olympics 2020 is definitely time for Yohan Blake to perform at his best in the 100M and 200M. The stage is set for Yohan to have solid performances. There is only so much continuous running in the legs of a Professional sprinter. At some point between Training and competing, the body gets tired even if the brain does not. Yohan Blake is approaching that point. He will participate in the 2020 Olympics and then retire. Suffice to say, no athlete is winning the Men’s 100M in Olympics 2020 unless he runs the distance in less than 10.0 seconds.

Omar McLeod continues to impress. His performances have created renewed interest in the 110M Hurdles. The 110M Hurdles is an event in which Jamaican Athletes should excel. Doha 2019 was a defeat but there is still time for Omar to bounce back. Until Omar is defeated at the Olympics, he owns that event. It is time to get ready for Olympics 2020. He has support in his consideration to compete in the 400M Hurdles.

Javon Francis appears to be staying in shape. Staying in shape will prevent a repeat of this kind of performance. Will 2020 be the year he talks to the man in the mirror? Will 2020 be the year he rebounds?

Everton Clarke with a Personal Best of 10.08 for the 100M and 20.45 for the 200M should see Olympics 2020 as a venue to achieve. He should make the Team. His Men’s 4 × 100 meters relay participation in the 2018 Commonwealth Games was strong. Olympics 2020 will make or break the career of many athletes. That is true for both Male and Female. Everton Clarke is one of those athletes. Apparently not selected for Doha 2019 but should make it to Olympics 2020.

Nathon Allen showed promise in 2017 but in 2018, he appeared to falter. Perhaps, there was something lacking in his training regiment. He should be able to resolve the matter and return rejuvenated.

Tajay Gayle looks exceptional at the Long Jump. Olympics 2020 is definitely the year for him to demonstrate his talent. He looked exceptional in Doha 2019.

Demish Gaye ran a respectable time of 44.55 for the 400M in World Championships 2017. He has some work to do but he is capable. The way forward is clear. If he can reduce his time to between 43.5 and 43.9 seconds, he will be in the discussion for a medal in Olympics 2020. That will change the narrative of the conspicuously absent Jamaicans in the 400M finals at the Olympics.

Ronald Levy is the Athlete with the best potential to challenge Omar McLeod. He has excellent technique and speed. He is at his prime for the 110M Hurdles. The 2020 Olympics, is definitely the year for him to demonstrate he is a superior athlete in that event.

Clive Pullen if still active should be competitive in the Triple Jump (Hop Skip and Jump).

O’Dayne Richards should be competitive in the shot put and discus throw. He should be able to give a good account of himself in both events. Along with Fedrick Dacres and Traves Smikle, the Men’s Field events squad should Medal at Olympics 2020. If Doha is an indication, Hardware is expected.

Andre Clarke if still active should be competitive in the 400M Hurdles. Regardless of any performances not seen, this event is up for grabs at Olympics 2020. Anyone from anywhere can win.

Jermaine Gayle still has time to come in from the cold. Excellent performance in the 400M event will require men who will consistently run between 43.01 and 44.5 and women who will consistently run between 48.0 and 49.4. This is a serious challenge. The 400M race is the most exhausting of the sprints.

Rusheen McDonald should be competitive in the 400M sprint. Regardless of any performances not seen in 2020, if he improves on his Personal Best of 43.93, he should make the Team.

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!!!
