Giant on the move
Fraser makes it double delight for Jamaica
Fraser finished ahead of Kerron Stewart and Sherone Simpson, who dead-heated for silver in a Jamaican clean sweep at the Bird’s Nest on Sunday.
It followed Usain Bolt’s extraordinary victory in the men’s 100 metres on Saturday and confirmed Jamaica as the world’s sprint capital.
Was it all down to Yam power again?
Or is there some other reason why Jamaica is so good? Let us know in the comments.
