Jamaica will be seeking to build on their shortcomings from yesterday's opening round of competition at the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) Youth Olympics in Nanjing, China, where they missed out in the volleyball and swimming events, respectively.

In Pool B of the men's volleyball action, Rojey Hutchinson and Shavar Bryan went down 8-21, 13-21 to Brazil.

The Jamaicans go in search of redemption today when they do battle with the Republic of Congo in the men's volleyball.

In swimming, Timothy Wynter finished 33rd, with a time of 59. 21 seconds, in the boys' 100m backstroke yesterday.

Sidrell Williams will seek to improve on his preliminary performance as he goes in search of a qualification spot in the 100m butterfly.

Also, in the épée fencing competition, Tia Simms Lyn will lead the country's charge for a medal.
