Jamaicans break camp in Kecskemet

Jamaica’s runners, throwers, and jumpers will today break camp in Kecskemet, Hungary….three days before the start of the world athletics championship on Saturday in Hungary. 

The Jamaican camp which was not mandatory which began last Wednesday was used to bring some of the athletes together in one location as they prepare for the 2023 biennial track and field showpiece. 

The decision by the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association to make the camp non-mandatory………..was to allow athletes with what the JAAA’s considered high-level training structures to remain with their coaches a little longer, and also allow them the opportunity to continue earning from competition should they choose that option.

Meanwhile, the athletes will now be moving to the athletes’ village in Budapest, where they will continue technical work with members of the coaching staff headed by Maurice Wilson. 

Jamaica’s 65-member team at the Championships, comprises 32 males and 33 females. 

The Championships end on Sunday, August 27.
