Jamaican gymnast astounds Toni-Ann Williams

Jamaica's Toni-Ann Williams defied the odds to lead the University of California Berkeley to an upset win over the number-4 ranked Utah in what was a closely contested battle in collegiate gymnastics on Saturday.

Competing with a bruised knee that was supposed to have kept her from contesting the floor routine for the second meet in a row, Williams landed an impressive dismount on the beam and then surprised everyone.

“She landed her beam dismount and said 'Gosh, that felt good. Maybe I should do floor,”

Coach Liz Crandall-Howell recounted. “She said it kind of tongue-in-cheek kidding...but then she wasn't really kidding.”

The impressive beam routine had given the Jamaican Olympian a boost in confidence.

I finished my beam routine and I was feeling good, so I joked that I could probably do a floor routine,” she said. “I had nothing to lose. I had a lot of trust in my training and it was the same as normal. In the…

                                  WEEK - END COMMENT
Once more we are confronted with the sad reality, that the potential for a truly Caribbean nation state, is approaching full disarray. The major players on this occasion are: Jamaica, Guyana and St. Lucia. A report presented by former Prime Minister of Jamaica, Mr. Bruce Golding, has advised the government of Jamaica to seriously reexamine, the benefits of the Caribbean Single Market economy(CSME).The report is suggesting that if Jamaica cannot identify the benefits of such membership, it should abandon the CSME. This would be music to the ears of Prime Minister Andrew Holness, whose negativity toward regional integration, is approaching legendary status. On more than one occasion, the Mahogany Coconut Group, has asked Holness to mend his ways to no avail. We cannot jump to conclusions regarding Guyana and St. Lucia but their apparent interest in organizations referred to as “Lima states”, which are doing the work o…
