Kingston 12 February 2019 – The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, says the “government will be there for Kemoy Campbell,” the Jamaican runner who collapsed during competition in the United States on the weekend.

Campbell has been hospitalised since the incident on Saturday.

Minister Grange says she has reached out to the athlete’s family and management and has been “making arrangements to assist with Kemoy’s care.”

Minister Grange notes that Kemoy Campbell is registered with the Jamaica Athletes Insurance Programme and is able to access benefits under the scheme. In addition, the Minister has mandated the Sports Development Foundation to be ready to assist with his immediate needs.

“We continue to pray for Kemoy’s recovery and assure him and his family that Jamaica will be there for them during this time. We have been in discussions about what he requires now and we are committed to doing what is necessary to see that he gets the best care and achieves a full recovery,” said Minister Grange.

Minister's charge

I remain hopeful because of the giftedness of the Jamaican people; their warmth and creativity; their dynamism and indomitable spirit that have resulted in excellence in all sectors.

It is by tapping into the gifts and awakening the spirit of the Jamaican people that we will, by God’s grace, re-group, re-engineer and re-open to a brighter future with Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.
