Jamaican sprinting stars Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce are expected to continue their award-winning offseason when the top male and female athletes are named at today's Scotiabank-sponsored Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) Golden Cleats Awards.


The pair created history last month when they became the first Jamaican duo to win the male and female IAAF World Athletes of the Year awards in the same year in Monte Carlo.

Bolt and Fraser-Pryce both won three medals each at this summer's World Championships in Moscow.
