Show Notes

In this episode, our guest, Sport Commentator, Donald Smith joins host Dalton Myers and producer, Rosheika Grant to discuss “The Year in Review of Sports in 2020”.

In this episode, Machel, Dalton and Rosheika discuss their top moments in sports in 2020, the disappointments of the year regionally and internationally and also their expectations and hopes for 2021 in the sporting arena. They discuss the cancellation and postponements of major sporting events in Jamaica as well as regional and global events.  

The trio also speaks about:

  1. The effect of the little to no competitive football  in Jamaica and the importance of football returning in early 2021 
  2. The value of the Velocity Fest Meets that were held and how the organisers’ approach should be adapted by other sporting stakeholders
  3. The disadvantage that local athletes may face when they return to international competitions
  4. The resilience of sport internationally in its return and the ingenious strategies to satisfy protocols such as the NBA Bubble 
  5. The economic impact of cancellation of sports regionally and internationally on stakeholders such as athletes, sport administrators and sport commentators.

The “Podcast Pick” for this week’s episode is “Perspectives on Caribbean Football” by Christopher A.D. Charles.
