Letter of the day: Jinx - I should never have dissed Bolt

Published:Wednesday | June 3, 2015 | 12:00 AM


After some much-needed introspection, I would like to publicly apologise for the comments made about Usain Bolt. Not only were they unwarranted, but also highly inappropriate, and for this I am truly sorry.

My intention was never to degrade or disrespect anyone, but without realising, I did. I allowed pent-up frustration to get the better of me and did not conduct myself in a respectful manner.

I apologise to those persons who I hurt, including friends, family my husband, and the Jamaican people at large, but especially Usain Bolt.

Although I am, and have been, frustrated by the disturbances, I should have dealt with this in a private and more civil manner. My intentions are to speak with Usain, discuss this regrettable incident, and personally apologise.
