McFarlane and ex-Commonwealth Games 400-metre champion Michael Blackwood will lead the Jamaican charge at the indoor meet.

Other Jamaicans include shot putter Dorian Scott, and sprinters Clement Campbell and Aileen Bailey, who is the lone female.

Two of Jamaica’s rising sprint stars, CARIFTA champion Yohan Blake and Nickel Ashmede, lead the field for the Under-23, 60 metres, a new event at the Games.

The Millrose Games, slated for the famous Madison Square Garden, is the third stop in the USA Track & Field’s Visa Championship Series indoors.
