Mi a lose off Janieve Russell now. She failed on the big occasions.
Can’t remember when last she mek a Jamaican team.
Lucky u can make a moey without running at the Olympics
Great. This will help her hurdling. She should consider running the 400 flat in cpmpetition.
Robert Jones for speed because those girls Delilah Muhamad and Sydney McLaughlin are so fast. On another level.
Taieke Haughton I know , I hope 2021 will be good for her. She did win junior worlds.
Robert Jones yup, not everyone transition over to the senior ranks well though.
