Veronica I never doubted you. I know you are the best. I was disappointed when I saw that you wern't qualified for the 100m. It's one of those days when things went wrong. Part of life. Love you girl and keep up the good work. You are a true Jamaican.Congrats to Usain and the others that makes us proud. I don't see where he was disrespecting any athletes as that chief was saying. The guy was very happy to make his country proud and that was his way to express his feelings. It sounds like jealousy coming from that chief.I don't see where he commented on the "superstar" from China when he walks off the field when the race was about to start. That is disrespect not someone enjoying themselves after winning gold for their country. Jamaicans are very lively people and we won't let anyone put us their way as long as we are not doing anything illegal. Anyway, big up to all Jamaicans.
