This week’s image comes from the Thursday Gleaner story entitled World Youth Team On Track For Scholarships.

In the photo, Jamaica’s medal-winning athletes from the recently concluded World Youth Championships held in Ukraine pose with baskets presented to them upon arrival at the Norman Manley International Airport yesterday. In addition to their medals and accolades, several members of the team will be rewarded with free tertiary-level scholarships, if they wish to take up the offers. The 2013 youth team became the first Jamaican group to top a medal table (six gold and two bronze medals) at any global athletics meet.
