Arguably the most naturally gifted athlete the world has ever seen.  Usain St. Leo Bolt, a.k.a. ‘Lightning’ Bolt, confirmed his tremendous talents when he realized his dreams by winning a phenomenal three gold medals and breaking three world records at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China.  Bolt became the first man in Olympic history to win both the 100m and 200m races in world record times and then as part  of the 4×100m team that also smashed the world record later in the meet.  He created history again

Irie!!!

.

Party Prince Harry danced his socks off in blue suede shoes during his royal visit to Jamaica.

.

The prince was visiting Kingston when he was pulled to his feet by attractive

Chantol Dormer.

.

The 27-year-old royal proved that his rhythm was on par with jammin’ style as he boogey-down to a rendition of reggae legend Bob Marley’s “One Love”.

 .

That night Harry attended a black tie state dinner with Prime Minister

Mrs Portia Simpson.

.

In a well-received speech the prince had his audience eating out of his hand with a few jokes in the local patois.

.

He said: ‘I count it a great privilege to be standing here tonight, representing The Queen in Jamaica on her Diamond Jubilee. Her Majesty has asked me to extend her great good wishes to you all, and is sorry that she can’t be here - so you’re stuck with me… but don’t worry, cos every liddle ting gonna be aright! ‘

 .

‘Your vibrancy and vigour, your wonderful welcome to visitors and your island’s natural beauties - all combine to make Jamaica unique. ‬‪The Queen recognised this.

Jamaica’s High Commissioner to Canada Sheila Sealy Monteith has recommended this brilliantly-made, two-part documentary that details much of Jamaica’s march to Independence.

.

The documentary is excellent …

.

It is recommended to all - Jamaicans and non-Jamaicans - and in particular to young people. It will help bring perspective to the struggle endured to gain the independence Jamaicans enjoy today.

.

This is extremely interesting and useful information on the beginnings of the process of Jamaica’s formal independence …….
