Kingston, 28 September 2019 – The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has said that long jumper Tajay Gayle was “simply great” in winning the long jump gold medal at the IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar today, creating a record for Jamaica.

Minister Grange said:
“By becoming the first Jamaican man to win a field title at the World Championships, Gayle, has demonstrated in no uncertain manner his class and it is only fitting that his good performances have been capped by a gold medal at the Championships.

“I wish to let Tajay know that entire Jamaica is thrilled by what he has accomplished in Qatar."



We place people at the heart of everything we do.

We believe that culture is the great equaliser and transformer that makes ordinary men and women great.

We believe that gender equality is essential in a modern society.

We believe that an entertained person is a happy person and happy persons make happy societies.

We believe that physical activity enhances lives and sport is the medicine that heals and corrects.

Olivia Grange
