The 'Reggae Boyz' national football team, who made it all the way to the World Cup, captured the hearts and imagination of all who witnessed their efforts. Local teams are ready to offer spirited competition to visiting football teams and of course there are excellent cricket and >hockey teams always keen to compete.
The pleasures of golf in this beautiful country have long been appreciated and there are several courses around the island.
A much noisier sport is also popular here, as the silence of the mountains is broken by the roar of engines as rally cars are pushed around hairpin bends. Jamaican drivers are enthusiastic regional competitors and are often the team to beat!

A GALAXY OF MEN who starred in their chosen fields have assembled in Barbados for a massive event today and tomorrow.
Topping the list are Ben Johnson and Lou Gossett Jr, the famous Academy Award-winning actor, who are among the list of persons due to participate in the Kevin Weekes Golf Classic at the Barbados Golf Club. The play moves to Sandy Lane later.
