Here are the final snippets from my radio interview on Sportsline on Hot102FM in Jamaica last week Monday. The show was hosted by Wayne Lewis and Trudy-Ann Williams,  while Bruce James, the President of MVP track club (where Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce trains), also made an appearance as we discussed the recently concluded World Championships:

The first snippet is about the continuing misconception in Jamaica that all Africans (and by definition Nigerians) are long distance runners, which I was once again quizzed on – I made a teaser about this observation from our Jamaica trip and I also blogged about this just before the World Championships to try to set this notion right! Perhaps I will have to release a new video teaser soon to address this once and for all…watch this space! 😉

We also discussed Jamaica’s current pedigree in sprinting – Wayne tries to get controversial and critical about Jamaica’s performance at the World Championships, and I eventually come to Bruce James’ rescue (not that he needed me to!)

Finally, Bruce James and I both give our high and low points from the World Championships – Enjoy!
