All Jamaicans run fast

The Caribbean island can boast of having some of the best world athletes like Usain Bolt and Shirley-Ann Fraser-Pryce and they have every right to be proud of them and all their other athletes.

This doesn’t translate to everyone in Jamaica being able to run as fast as them. Now, the island has athletics training programs for those who have a love for the sport.

Also, it is not uncommon to find children running sprints for fun. To assume every Jamaican is a ‘track star’ is a wrong assumption.
