Ecstasy in Half-Way Tree

The IAAF World Championships concluded in Moscow with Jamaica finishing third in the gold medal table, behind hosts Russia and the United States of America. The week of athletics produced many performances by – among others – Usain Bolt, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Warren Weir and the youthful men’s 4 x 400 metres relay team that exhilarated the country. Nowhere was this more evident than in Half-Way Tree, the transportation hub of the capital, Kingston. ¬†Giant screens were placed that enabled passers-by to view the races and it eventually became the mecca to view the races. Here are images of the joy and pride of Jamaicans as we celebrated our athletes’ performances.¬†[zooeffect AIKApNLk17FD]
