KINGSTON (JAM): Jamaica Gleaner writes that having upgraded the JN International Invitational meet to IAAF World Challenge status, the sport’s world governing body has also committed 30 000 USD as for every other meet in the series towards the staging of the event, which will run at the National Stadium on May 7 next year. Additionally, it has also been revealed that the Jamaica Amateur Athletic Association (JAAA) was originally approached by the IAAF ahead of this year’s staging of the meet, with the idea of an upgrade. However, certain proposed changes to the meet structure and the number of events that could be run, forced careful consideration from the administration. “We had the opportunity to have the meet upgraded from this year, but it was something that we were reluctant to really take on at that time given the number of events and the types of events that they (IAAF) normally wants to see and there were other little things that we felt would affect the way we have been running our meet in the past,” said JAAA President Howard Aris.
