Jamaica's Champs: The nursery of World and Olympic champions like Don Quarrie and Usain Bolt. Asafa Powell, not so much.

Sounds comparable to the fanaticism of Texas HS football. Based on recent history, Jamaica does seem to have a leg up on the rest of the world when it comes to speed. This article mentions Shelley-Ann Fraser who won the 100m gold in Beijing, but doesn't point out that Jamaicans also won two silvers in that race, which is amazing. The feat that is, not the omission.
