Usain Bolt, Elaine Thompson and Omar Mcleod will lead a strong Jamaican team into next month’s World Championships in London.
Bolt, who ran his quickest time in 2017 last week in Monaco, will chase his fourth successive 100 metres world title and a fifth consecutive 4x100m relay gold in London, which are his last major championships.
Olympic double sprint champion Elaine Thompson and Omar Mcleod, who won Jamaica’s first 110 metres hurdles gold at the Rio Games, were also included in the 59-member squad announced by the Jamaica’s athletics administration (JAAA) on Monday.
Hansle Parchment, who won 110m hurdles silver at the last world championships in Beijing, and rising star Ronald Levy join world leader Mcleod in the event.
Reigning 100m hurdles world champion Danielle Williams, who set a new personal best of 12.56 seconds to win the Jamaican title last month, was also included, along with Olympic and world 400m bronze medallist Shericka Jackson.
The Jamaican team will aim to improve on the 12 medals secured at the 2015 world championships in Beijing.
