JAMAICA SUFFERED a major blow hours ahead of their opening match of the men's volleyball World Championship qualifying tournament, when they lost Neil Williams to injury.

During training at the Barbados Community College on Tuesday, Williams suffered severe damage to his mouth in an incident.

The 24-year old hitter had to undergo dental work, and the team feared that he would be ruled out of the five-team tournament.

"It is a devastating blow from the standpoint that Neil has been a regular starter," head coach Philip Greenland, said. "He is the captain of the block, but we train for contingencies, and while we will miss him, I think we have adequate replacements for him."< Read more >

Jamaica honoured seven-time Olympic champion Merlene Ottey with the unveiling of a bronze statue in her likeness Wednesday at JamaicaÕs national stadium. Jamaican sculptor Barry Watson created the eight-foot (2.4-metre) statue, which stands in front of the arena located in east Kingston. "I ran for Jamaica and it was always the greatest pleasure putting on that black, green and gold uniform,"

Ottey told a crowd of about 150 people, including politicians and athletes. In her six Olympics for Jamaica, the 45-year-old won eight individual medals Ð five bronze and three silvers.

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!



JAMAICA - football

The BFA has hand-picked more than 25 youngsters for the showcase, and divided them into two teams on show. In addition, teams from Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, St Martin and Virginia Castle, a US high school, will play one another over two days of round-robin action, which started with three matches yesterday. < Read more >


In the World Cup of 1998 the Reggae Boyz reigned supreme and for a while football was on every Jamaican's mind.


In France, people attending the world cup matches were asked who they would pick after their own home team to win and an overwhelming majority picked Jamaica! Testament to the effort and character displayed by the team and a matter of great pride for the country.

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.

Ben Johnson, who was born in Jamaica, stunned everyone when he arrived as he was not originally on the list.

"I have not been here for 15 years, so I took the opportunity to come to this beautiful island again and support the Kevin Weekes Foundation," he said after signing autographs for the excited crowd of children, parents and hotel staff.

Since leaving the track "Big Ben" has been concentrating on a new clothing line called BenJohnsonCollection - featuring sportswear, casual wear and shoes. He plans to launch on the island this weekend < Read more >

JAMAICA - netball

Date March 19, 2006 Compliments of the Nation News


MELBOURNE - With the music of their icons bellowing from the speakers of the State Hockey and Netball Centre, Jamaica's netballers made light work of Barbados yesterday.

The women from the land of wood and water played their poorest netball in the first 60 seconds, then dominated Barbados with their fluent mid-court transition and physical defending to easily win 69-30.

Rated third in the world and expected to be only challenged by world champs New Zealand or hosts Australia at these Commonwealth Games, Jamaica's reserves sang along with the large crowd to famous tracks by Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff, as teammates strut their stuff on the court.

Ryan Hurley misses a wild swing and is bowled. Carib Beer cricket series Barbados vs Jamaica Ryan Hurley misses a wild swing and is bowled.

Barbados’ batsmen again fell apart, allowing tournament leaders Jamaica to get their third win on the trot yesterday.
In a see-saw battle, the visitors sneaked home by ten runs in a thriller against the defending champions at Windward club, St Philip.

Kurt Wilkinson hit a mature 61 but the home team, chasing a modest target of 158, never recovered after losing their first five wickets for 27 and were bowled out for 147.

Fast bowler Daren Powell completed a fine all-round match by ripping out the off-stump of last man Jason Bennett with a yorker to end the match with a day to spare. < Read more >
