Morgan Makes Rio Appeal

59

Discus thrower Jason Morgan is appealing to the local track and field governing body to add him to the list of athletes to represent Jamaica at the Rio Games.

Morgan set the national record of 68.19m at a meet in the United States in June last year, which qualified him for the 2016 Olympic Games.

However, he was not named in the team announced yesterday.

Track and field analyst, Hubert Lawrence, is supporting Morgan’s call, saying he hopes the J-3A’s will change their position and allow him to join the team on the plane to Rio next month.
