Jamaica High School Track and Field Championships

Postby jamboy » Wed Mar 13, 2013 4:50 pm

The Jamaica High School Track and Field Championships "Champs" got on the way on Tuesday, March 12 and runs until Saturday, March 16 at the national stadium in Kingston, Jamaica.

It is the largest high school track and field championships in the world and is the the birthplace of World and Olympic champions Usain Bolt, Fraser, Veronica, Melanie Walker etc.

One of the stars of the meet is expected to be Delano Williams of Munro High School who won the sprint double last year and is hugely favored to repeat this year. He recently anchored a 4 x 400m relay team with a 44.8 leg at the Gibson Relay in February. He is expected to join Racers Track Club with Usain Bolt and Company when he graduates in June.

Is is bigger than the Texas and California Champs? California is more than ten times the Jamaican population (38,000,000 vs 2,600,000). The just serves to highlight the quality per unit in the sprints and now in some other events (especially for the women).

Do you have 35,000+ people filling a stadium to watch HS athletes run in the US? I certainly don't think so. This happens every year at "Champs" in Jamaica.

Delano Williams is expected to run the 100m , 200m , 4 x 100m and the 4 x 400m.

Could end up with 4 gold medals. He is that good.

So if it is a championship, who are the 35,000 people and what are they competing in. Is it a bunch of events with with ten rounds each? Or is 35,000 the size of the crowd?

So, would you actually explain what you mean by the "biggest" rather than calling names for someone that is not starting from the same default of context. My default thinking is that it means the most athletes; bodies in the stands do not necessarily constitute "big". By that measure, if they ran one race at the Rose Bowl, it would triple the size of the 35000 at the Jamaican Championships. Wisconsin played Minnesota in an outside ice hockey game in Chicago with something like 35-40,000 people in the stands. I do not think of that as the biggest hockey game of the year.

"Best attended" is more descriptive than "biggest".

hehe you seriously mean to tell us you dont understand why the Jamaican high school champs are bigger than the Texas state champs that almost nobody cares about ?

Or maybe the Texas state champs are watercoooler discussion material at your job; Forget March madness did anyone see the high jump at the Texas state championships ? i I cant wait to see the highlights on sports center :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Wow! Great news piece on quite why Jamaica is producing so many sprint champions. I didn't realise the Champs are so brutal, a literal survival of the fittest as well as the most talented. No wonder with so much passion from little children onwards and through the whole population and such a ruthless system and such need to escape poverty that Jamaicans are so dominate by the time they hit world level.

Before they moved the Texas State Meet out of the football stadium into the smaller track facility they now use, that meet used to regularly draw between 30 and 40,000 annually.

He's 14, Matherson was born in 1999 I believe.

That being said, conditions permitted he could go much faster me thinks.

How old is Tyreke Wilson who ran 10.99? If he is 12 that must be pretty close to a world record for that age.

Yep, after checking, it definitely would be if he was 12 as of the race. Even if he's 13 by now he's only a few hundredths down on Darrel Brown.

The cutoff date for age classification is somewhere around the start of the school year, I think August 31, 2012.

So he could be 14 years and a few months old now.

What's his exact birthdate??

He could be born in 1999, and still be 13 years old.
If his birthdate is AFTER the date of the race, then he was still 13 at the time he ran it!!

The only possible event in high school that might draw as many as 35,000 Americans is if the kids drove cars around a paved circle like in a NASCAR race and there was a 50-50 chance of a pile up leading to carnage. We Americans really like our sports!

Here is the race


Wow, I just watched the video, and am pretty surprised by how the race played out. I assumed the winner would just take the lead early on and then steadily pull away all the way to the finish. Nope. Looked like that other kid to his right was neck and neck with him, and even started to pull slightly ahead of Williams around the 50 or 60m mark, and then with great suddenness only THEN did Williams go into beastmode, and seemed like he hit a higher gear that nobody else in the field had and suddenly just blew away from the field in the final 30m, generating basically his entire lead over the 2nd place finisher in just the final 30m of the race. Crazy! I wonder what types of times this kid would be running if he learns to run the first 70m of his race more strongly! I'm gonna be keeping an eye on this kid. Looks like some siiiick raw talent right there. :shock:
