I enjoy the Jamaican fans, the alwsys keep me upto date with the best and brightest of the up and coming Jamaicans talent

Jamaicans need a visa and with boston event, wont it be harder to get one now

I suspect security entering franklin field will make lines enterting long and tough

come early and be prepared to wait long


The US embassy in Kingston always give our athletes a hard time every year when it come to issuing visas in a timely fashion.

That's unfortunate. In cases like this there's sometimes a very small minority that try to abuse the system though, and who end up making things harder for everyone else. I'm not sure whether this has anything to do with how easily visas are issued for Jamaican athletes in Kingston or not, but I guess it could...

Do you hope that The Big O pulls up every race too or are you biased? You do not have to like the guy, but you do not have to shout out something nasty every time either.
