Jamaica’s top international athletics meet set for May 7

KINGSTON, Jamaica – The JN Jamaica Invitational Meet, to be held at the National Stadium on May 7, 2011, is now of even greater importance on the calendars of sporting enthusiasts in Jamaica and internationally, says Earl Jarrett, General Manager of the Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) speaking at the launch of the Invitational Meet at the Wyndham Kingston Hotel last Thursday (April 14).

The Invitational Meet started in 2004 as a regional competition. After last year’s event it was upgraded to World Challenge status, which is just below the Diamond League level in the International Amateur Athletic Foundation (IAAF) rankings. The result is a competition which will be even more compelling for athletes and audiences.
