Product Description
"Champs" is the world’s oldest and most intensely-contested athletics meet of its kind and "Champs 100" was published in time to celebrate the first hundred years of organized mainstream high school athletics in Jamaica. The book traces the origins of the rivalries that have preserved the high standard of competition for a century and does much to explain the persistence of Jamaican track and field athletes – particularly sprinters – at the top levels of world athletics. Heavily illustrated, "Champs 100" contains over a thousand photographs and memorabilia, as well as features that take an in-depth view of many of the Champs stars who have delighted fans for a century. Track fans will witness the legends of Wint, Miller, Quarrie, Ottey, Cameron, Campbell-Brown, Powell, Walker, Stewart, Simpson, Fraser, Blake, and of course, Bolt – plus many others. There is a chapter for every year of competition, comprehensive championship statistics, a feature on the Penn Relays and the strong Jamaican participation there, plus a detailed discussion on the merger of Boys’ and Girls’ Champs into one meet in 1999.
