    Thats good news…Jamaica is the ideal country to perfect ones skills in track and field in the Caribbean..Competition is fierce and it brings out the best in you. Whoever Edwin Alleyne High in Clarenfon is the perfect school for budding sprinters. Its located close to one of the best track in Jamaica, which is in St Catherine.. Edwin Alleyne recently produced the Clayton Twins, Tina and Tia Clayton, Kevona Davis, and many more..Brilliant athletes you could google.
    Stay focussed, but Edwin Alleyne High is the best..When i return to Jamaica next year i shall remember your names for sure!!!
