  1. Good luck! I respect his decision… but why so late? At this moment his reasons are not valid. He should have decided it right after the Jamaica Track and Field National Trials 2019. It means he wasted one spot for his country, which could have been filled in by Asafa Powell(10.02 July 24th) or Waseem Williams(10.01 July 5th) or Andre Ewers(10.06 May 11th) It feels like he robbed them in a way….
