The location is Greenwich, London, England for the “I Love Jamaica Day” organised by Jamaica National on the 12 August 2012. London, England is hosting the Olympics for 2012. The Jamaican athletes were making a big impact at the Olympics in London. Usain Bolt was the name that everybody was talking about. Usain Bolt defended his title at 100 metres and 200 metres. For the 200 metres it was Jamaica 1st, 2nd and 3rd for Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake and Warren Weir. For the 4×100 m relay Jamaica set a world record of 36.84 seconds with Usain Bolt.
It all started at the Jamaica National Stadium as seen from the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel. From this arena our athletes competed before being released into the world to compete in competitions. Jamaica made an impact at the Olympics in 2008 and has continued making an impact as seen in the Olympics for 2021. For the 100 metres the wonderful ladies came 1st, 2nd and 3rd for Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly-Ann Fraser and Shericka Jackson. Keep watching the Olympics for 2021 because Jamaica is involved in so many different events with the opportunity to get more medals.
The above images from 2010 were painted on a wall in uptown Kingston. Jamaica is a sporting nation and each competitor is appreciated.
Let’s return to London, England. It was good to have the Olympics in London for 2012 and I did not have a ticket for any of the events so I captured what was going on outside of the Olympics in 2012.
Everybody was feeling good with the Olympics happening in London and the same could be said about the Jamaicans and the friends of Jamaica. I Love Jamaica Day captured the wonderful colours of the Jamaican flag and the wonderful people. Below are the images from 2012.
Jamaica Day for 2012 was quite an enjoyable day. Jamaica is not just limited to Music and Sport. May God continue to Bless Jamaica for 59 years of independence.
