Like every other Jamaican, my girls and I are proud beyond measure over the performances of Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce at the World Championships. You should have heard the screams of delight! Still, even with four men in the final of the men's 100 m, we still regret the absence of Asafa Powell and Yohan Blake. Does anyone else agree that we would have taken home gold, silver and bronze?

Question of the week

What has become of Melaine Walker?
