Beijing Caribbean Chase
Usain Bolt (JAM) leads the men's medals table with 10 along with Carl Lewis (USA).  Both have won eight gold medals but Bolt holds a slight edge with two silvers when compared to Lewis' one silver and one bronze. Bolt is set to assume the top spot should he win a medal of any hue in Beijing. Of course, gold is the expected color for him. 
Bolt's collection includes a hat-trick of 200m and 4x100m titles and a pair of 100m crowns. His silver medals came in the 200m and 4x100m relay in 2007.  In Beijing he is entered to contest the 100m, 200m and 4x100m so at best he could come away with another triple gold.

Ottey won all her medals competing for Jamaica before switching allegiance to Slovenia. Her impressive haul includes three gold, 4 bronze and seven bronze. More significant are the six straight medals (silver, bronze, bronze, gold, gold, bronze) she won in the 200m from 1983 to 1997!!!!.

Veronica Campbell-Brown (JAM)  is the next best Caribbean female performer and is the third highest number of medals on the table with nine (two gold, seven silver). Her gold medals were won in the 100m in 2007 and the 200m in 2011. In Beijing she is set to add to her tally.

Fellow Jamaicans Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Beverly Mc Donald and Lorraine Fenton have all won seven medals. Fraser-Pryce's collection consists of five gold medals after her triple triumphs in 2013 in the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m and her double wins in 2009 in the 100m and 4x100m.
