Jamaican style 

Does one country deserve so much suavity?

This is a BBC guy doing streeters in Kingston, Jamaica, asking people who they think will win the 100m men's: Usain Bolt or Asafa Powell, the two Jamaican men battling for gold. Bolt could have beaten Donovan Bailey's 1996 record today, but he jogged the last 20 m. I am watching the women's 100, qualifiers now. Jamaicans look good there, too. What is it about Jamaica that makes me want to cheer? And - the American (the guy with the bad uniform) Tyson Gay is out of the competition.
