ImageMiami FC remains undefeated as they worked their way to a 1-1 draw in the final game of the season-opening home stand against the Carolina Railhawks.

“You can be dominating Carolina, but if you don’t put them away, they will punish you and they did tonight,” Miami FC head coach Victor Pastora said. “Today feels like a loss. We played very well in the first half and outplayed them in the second half. But we have to put things in perspective and we feel like we are making progress and the results will follow.”

For Jamaicans at home and in the Diaspora, the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and the World Championships in Berlin a year later were unforgettable. Most will remember the outstanding performance of Usain 'Lighting" Bolt who proved he was still the fastest human being on the planet, outclassing the field in the 100 meters (9.58 secs) and 200 meters (19.19 secs) (both world records) at the World Championship in Berlin, Germany. In similar fashion, Olympic champion Shelly Ann Fraser took home gold in the women’s 100 meters while Kerron Stewart, hurdles champion Brigitte Foster-Hylton, Delloreen Ennis-London, 400m champion Melaine Walker, Veronica Campbell-Brown, Aileen Bailey and Simone Facey all made us extremely proud.
