WINNING FEELING: Rasheed Dwyer
JAMAICA CELEBRATED gold medals at the Universiade Games in China in both the men’s and women’s 100 and 200 metres, Rasheed Dwyer winning in 20.20 and Anneisha McLaughlin in 22.54. Jacques Harvey clinched the gold in the men’s 100m while Carrie Russell claimed the women’s title.
The Universiade is an international multi-sport event, organised for university athletes by the International University Sports Federation (FISU).
"There are so many runners in Jamaica. You must fight for your place in the national team," Dwyer said after crossing the finish line.
"This is an amazing feeling. I thank God for the opportunity to represent my country. Sometimes you have to stop thinking, and simply run."
