The Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) has named a 45-member squad for the August 10 - 18 IAAF World Championships in Athletics, set for Moscow, Russia.
Heading the list are double world record holder and defending world 200m champion Usain Bolt as well as Olympic 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
Also included is Olympic 110m hurdles bronze medallist Hansle Parchment, who was forced to withdraw from the national trials in June after injuring himself during warm-up.
He has not competed since.
Missing however, are Kenia Sinclair, 800m specialist, who also missed trials due to injury; and discus thrower Jason Morgan who is the only Jamaican with a qualifying standard in the event.
Morgan, however did not compete at the trials.
