Jamaica sweeps the sprints!!!

BEIJING – When it comes to these Olympic sprints, the Jamaicans jam.
In a sweep that will trigger yet another celebration back on the Caribbean island, Shelly-Ann Fraser won the gold and Sherone Simpson and Kerron Stewart finished in a dead heat for the silver in the women’s 100-meter dash Sunday.
Counting Usain Bolt’s world-record win the night before, that makes it two golds and two silvers for a country that had never won gold in an Olympic 100 meters before this year.
