Responding to the call of coach Fitz Coleman for lights at the UWI-Usain Bolt Stadium on the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies, the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA) delivered by financing the installation of lights.
For months the track was without lights, which disrupted training schedules of athletes aspiring to represent Jamaica on the regional and international stages.
“The JOA’s primary investment resides in our athletes and coaches,” said JOA president Christopher Samuda. “Our business strategies revolve around our athletes and coaches. Our inspiration comes from our athletes and coaches. The call was therefore compelling and we answered in earnest.”
