Of the ten fastest 100 metres times in history, eight belong to Jamaicans. How is it that a small Caribbean island has come to almost totally dominate the men’s and women’s sprint events? This book opens the doors on a community, where sprinting dominates conversations and interactions; where the high school games are watched by 35,000 screaming fans; where identity, success, and status are forged on the track, and making it is a pass to a world of adoration and lucrative contracts.
