I agree. It is indecent just how good Jamaican HS TnF is; especially when you take into account Jamaica's population. The last place-getters in many of the events would be national champions in most other countries.

Delano Williams just missed Usain Bolt's 200m HS record. He runs 20.27 missing Bolts record of 20.25.


He just ran an amazing race. This is a guy who ran a 44.8 anchor leg in the 4 x 400m race at Gibson Relays in February.

He was expected to anchor their 4 x 100m and 4 x 400m. He Munro team is expected to win both.

He should end up with a total of 4 gold medals by the end of the night.


Delano will be headed to Racers Track Club training with Bolt and Blake starting this June when he graduates.

35,000 screaming track and field fans in the stadium in support of their favorite high school teams. Live national TV coverage all week. Live streaming to a worldwide audience. This is high school track and field at its finest.

It can't get any better than this.

The University of Arkansas head sprint coach was on TVJ morning program this week.This was his umteenth time he has been to "Champs" and he said that there is no other track and field HS championships in the world like "Champs" in Jamaica.

He said he has traveled to dozens of countries over the years and nothing compares to "Champs" in Jamaica. He realizes now that the best of Jamaica's high school athletes no longer leave Jamaica(they stay home and train with Racers, MVP, etc in Kingston) however, his school tries to its best to recruit the best of those who decide they want to go to school overseas.

The commentator says there are dozens of US college scouts in the crowd looking for the next best athlete for their school.

Ato Boldon is in the comentators booth as well. You can hear his "distinct" Trinidadian accent.

Ato's mom is Jamaican.

Colin Jackson is also at the meet.

KC just won a wonderful 4 x 100m in 39.85 seconds. Munro second in 39.92.

Delano Williams ran an incredible anchor leg to come from way behind to place his team second. Incredible leg by him.

Live streaming link has crashed. Servers are probably overloaded from the thousands worldwide watching.

You can still listen to it on the radio

Not sure if the height of the hurdles in class one is the same as is on the international level. If so then thats the performance of the championship so far!

Records are dropping like flies at this championships. 27 meet records have been broken in the past 5 days. Unbelievable.

Never before in the history of "Champs" have so many records being broken. Just great.

It's 39 inches, same as the US high school and world junior height but 3 inches below the Olympic men's height.

Those three inches are a big deal; it seems like US high school hurdlers lose about a half a second, but Marlow could be more accurate on the differential.

Last year, the live streaming metrics from Sportsmax showed that about 100,000 people world wide logged on from 127 different countries to watch Champs live from Jamaica. No other high school track and field championship in the world comes close to "Champs"

Another record. 30 records broken in this championships. The most ever.

Delano Williams ran a blistering anchor leg for his Munro team to win in a new championship 4 x 400m record of 3.09.21. Hope to see him and his teammates soon at Penn Relays in Philly at the end of April. They won it at Penns last year.


His anchor leg was timed in 45.7.

Calabar wins the boys HS championships. Holmwood HS wins the girls section

The 2013 edition of Champs was the best ever.

The girls 4x400 record is insane. 3:30.51 by Vere, which is 5 seconds better than the US high school record, and faster than a few national teams in the Olympics last year.

Video of Delano Williams amazing 44.8 anchor leg run at the Gibson Relays at the end of February.
I believe that when he goes to the Racers Track Club later this year(training with Bolt/Blake), his best events will be the 200/400m.

He has a very bright future.

Boys 4 x 400m with Munro winning anchored by Delano Willaims. Amazing anchor leg for his third race of the day. Earlier today, won the 200m, anchored his team to a silver in the 4 x 100m and now a anchoring his team to a 4 x 400m win. He would be a dream for every US collegiate scout in Jamaica right now. Unfortunately, he will be staying right in Jamaica to train with Bolt/Blake which is the best decision.
