At this point I am more curious about the field events and those longer than 400m (especially for the men) because I want to see how much branching out they are doing. From the little that I have seen, there are more good athletes coming out in more events (e.g., the good young thrower). Of course, the cream of the Champs will likely be the 100/200.

Christoffe Bryan (DOB 26/04/1996) in class 2 has jumped 2.20 this year. Hopefully he will break Germaine Mason's meet record. Mason went to Wolmers just as Christoffe does. Chanice Porter WYC gold medallist in the LJ andbronze medallist in the HJ (DOB 25/05/1994) if she is back to her best is a 1.85m HJer and has a best LJ of 6.43 from 2010. Has had quad problems so not sure she will be fully fit for Champs. Federick Dacres the WYC discus champ who looks like a hjer has been throwing well. Miller and Oniya (Nigerian born) have put the shot over 19m this year. Most of the top boy sprinters are nursing injuries or not fully recovered from previous injuries. Jazeel Murphy seems to have finally shed his baby fat which was in evidence when he ran 10.27 at Carifta last year.
Team title shoud be Calabar from KC and JC in the boys and tight between defending champs Holmwood and Edwin Allen in the girls.

Great article about the history of "Champs" in Jamaica

In Jamaica there is only one event that grips the nation like the Olympic Games or World Championships – the national Boys and Girls Athletics Championships. To the rest of the world "Champs" may sound like a glorified school sports day, but to Jamaicans it is the highlight of the year, with crowds of 30,000 people gathering from across the island to watch over 100 schools battle it out for title of "King" or "Queen".

Veronica' Campbell's agent Claude Bryan....................

Nowhere else in the world will you see 30,000 people cheering on high schoolers. This is the place to be. You've got scouts here, shoe companies here, university coaches here, this is the market place to be at. It's very competitive." Bryan says he doesn't go to other schools events in the US or Europe, "No, they're boring. For me there are only three track and field events I wouldn't miss: the World Championships, the Olympic Games and the Champs."

"Too close to call. That is the resounding message from local track and field pundits, with the expectation of a vintage showdown at this year's Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/ GraceKennedy Boys and Girls' Athletics Championships, which gets under way properly at the National Stadium this morning. Despite yesterday's running of the 2000m steeplechase Open for boys, the championships will actually swing into high gear today, with the girls' Open triple jump and Class One discus finals, as well as the boys' Class One long jump final. The next four days of competition are expected to fuel a 'three-the-hard-way' battle royal between traditional rivals Calabar High, Kingston College and defending champions Jamaica College for the boys' crown."

"KINGSTON College's Sanj Powell smashed the 2000m Steeplechase Open record and his teammates Keneil Grant and Clive Pullen swept the Class I long jump final propelling the famed purples to 27 points after two finals. KC took their early customary spot atop the GraceKennedy ISSA Boys and Girls Athletics Championships with 27 points after first and second in the long jump and first and seventh in the gruelling steeplechase. KC are 15 points ahead of defending champion Jamaica College (JC) with 12 points, St Jago on 11 and Calabar High with seven points."

Some of us would prefer marks to places, so what were those winning marks?

Ato Boldon commented yesterday that he would love to be one of the commentators on Jamaican television for the Jamaica Olympic Trials at the end of June because it is going to be so exciting and competitive in the sprints(more than the US).

Both Jamaica and the US Trials are on the same weekend and he is already contractually obligated to NBC to be the commentator. All luck is not gone however because the Jamaica Trials will be streamed on the internet as usual and thus, Ato will be able to watch it and keep up with all the latest action while on the NBC US Trials telecast. He did do this in 2008 I remember while live on NBC, he announced he just heard out of Jamaica that Kerron Stewart won the womens 100m in 10.80 and Veronica was only 4th.

I am not a fan of youth and junior level T&F competition. Champs, is no exception.It's the same way I feel about indoor games also.The irony I find about champs, is that, those well known high profile boy schools that have always come out on top, year in year out .... most of those potential athletes have never lived up to the hype.

In previous years a lot of them got lost in the US system never to be heard from again. Daniel England comes to mind as a prime example. With the rise of world class home grown clubs this has lessened.

Also to consider; is the "never lived up to the hype" for Champs champions any less of a ratio for high school champions in other countries?

Damn, KC continues to do well....
:)
"IAAF World Youth Champion Fredrick Dacres was not entirely pleased with his win in the Class One discus event last night, but is nonetheless grateful for the points gained, as he looks to pull his Calabar team closer to early pace-setters Kingston College, who at press time, were leading the boys' section at the Inter Secondary School Sports Association/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls' Athletics Championships inside the National Stadium. With five finals contested, Kingston College were in the lead on 57 points, Calabar 41.5, Jamaica College 22, Wolmer's Boys 20.5, Munro College 14, St Jago High 13."

This article summarizes the athletic demise of Daniel England:

http://jamaica-gleaner.com/gleaner/2006 ... orts1.html
"I had a culture shock," says England. "I wasn't prepared for the American lifestyle and I didn't have a lot of guidance over there.

"When I went there I thought all I would have to do was run and study. But it wasn't like that. When I reached there I found out my scholarship wouldn't cover all of my tuition so I had to work to pay the rest of it.

"During the holidays I was homeless because I couldn't stay on the dorm and I had no relatives in the US."

With the sudden changes in lifestyle he experienced, England admits he crumbled under the pressure.

"I was just overwhelmed by all the responsibilities and changes at my age," he says.

"While at Calabar I was just focused on track - it was priority. But in the US track was third on the list of priorities. School work was first because I had to maintain my G.P.A. My job was second because all my tuition had to be paid to stay in school and then there was track."

I am in such awe from the knowledge and insight these race commentators have. These folks eat/sleep/breathe track and field.

Ato Boldon is a great addition this year.

Delano Williams on Munro(and Turks and Caicos Islands) wins the mens 100m in 10.37. After getting a poor start, he runs down the defending champion Jazeel Murphy.

Williams won the 200m last year and is highly favored to win the 200m tomorrow.

Watch out for him in the future. He will be a star.

"CALABAR High surged to a 16 1/2-point lead in the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys’ and Girls’ Athletics Championships after 17 finals on yesterday’s penultimate day of the four-day meet, setting the stage for an epic battle with arch-rivals Kingston College (KC) and Jamaica College (JC) on today’s final day. Calabar lead with 118.5 points ahead of KC on 102, Jamaica College with 89, and Wolmer’s Boys with 45.5 points and St Jago on 38 points for the top five."
