The achievement of our Jamaican athletes Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake and Warren Weir in capturing all three medals in the Men's 200 metres final at London Olympic Games marks a tremendous moment in our country's outstanding international sporting history.
“I rejoice at the brilliance of their performance which is the realisation of the dreams of so many generations of Jamaicans. Their victory is testimony to the indomitable spirit of our people and the result of the hard work, discipline and determination which went into the preparation of this glorious moment."
On behalf of a grateful nation, I say thank you to these three men for shining so brightly on the world stage reflecting the rays of our brilliant Jamaican sunshine. Their performance has made us proud of the black, gold and green, truly Jamaica to the world.
