Usain Bolt told Jamaican Olympians to protect their brands from corporate companies following success in Tokyo.
The legendary sprinter turned music producer is not one to mince words as he warned Jamaican Olympian athletes to “know your worth” as many flocks now after they’ve won but didn’t offer help when it was needed. The Jamaican Olympic team is by far the most impressive of the lot to have entered the Olympics and sweeping the medals list in the events the athletes competed in.
The island of just under three million people finished with a nine-medal haul, pulling in medals for some of the most track and field races despite formidable competition by the United States and countries like Italy and Kenya.
The 2020 Olympic Games is particularly memorable for Jamaica. For the second time in history, the women’s 100-meter sprint was swept by Jamaica with a sweet 1,2,3 haul, and sprinter Elaine Thompson Herah breaking the Olympic record in the same event.
Perhaps the Men’s 110-meter hurdles was a sweet deal for Jamaica as Hansle Parchment powered through to bring home gold for Jamaica. The euphoric wins were celebrated across Jamaica and even by the Chairman of the Sandals group of companies, Adam Stewart, who extended free hotel stays for the Olympians, winning gold.
“‘The Worlds Best’ continues to deserve ‘The Worlds Best.’ We got you,” Stewart said of the Olympians who medaled on his Twitter account as he extended free hotel stays at the Sandals Over Water Bungalows in Montego Bay.
