Ugandan Aryamanya “Ari” Rodgers, who represented Kingston College at Champs 2017, has once again received backlash on social media.
Rodgers’ criticism is for celebrating with his country’s flag after winning the 5,000 metres at Champs on Saturday (1 April).
Many have expressed disgust that he used the Jamaican high school meet to showcase national pride, while others have dismissed it as a non-issue.

Jamaicans who don’t need an excuse to fly our flag in another man’s country are cussing this Ugandan? Say it ain’t so.

We don’t remember how many Ja athletes got and still getting scholarships in the US? Leave the Ugandan alone!
