NCB Jamaica Limited extends congratulations to the 53-member team who represented Jamaica at the 2015 Beijing World Championships and secured our second-place overall finish. We would also like to especially acknowledge our own brand ambassadors and new members of the NCB family - Elaine Thompson and Julian Forte - whose performances assure us that the future of Jamaican

athletics is in good hands.

Each member of our talented team aptly demonstrated the words in our 'Excellence Ja' theme song:

"In the heart of a winner, there is no quit. There's a voice in the head of a champion saying 'go for it'. It's a beat of the heart, it's the call of the soul, it's ignoring the pain, while you're striving for gold. You're a winner."

NCB remains committed to our continued support of Jamaican sports development. We have supported the tertiary and nutritional needs of young track and field athletes through our long-standing partnership with the MVP Track Club. We have also provided support in kiddies' cricket, netball and badminton, contributing a total of more than $170 million to Jamaican sports development through the NCB Foundation since its inception in 2003.

To our athletes - We support you. We salute you and we wish you the best in all of your future endeavours.

NCB - Proud supporter of Jamaican Excellence for more than 175 years.
