1976 Olympics 200 metres gold medalist, Donald Quarry, says the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association, JAAA, need strong leadership that can attract corporate Jamaica and secure their trust.

Quarrie is seeking to become the next president of the association when votes are cast at the Annual General Meeting and election in late November. 

Quarrie will be going up against general secretary, Garth Gayle, after Incumbent president Dr. Warren Blake said he’ll not seek re-election.

The 69 year-old says the association doesn’t enjoy the confidence of the corporate world.

Quarrie says the JAAA inability to capitalize on the success of Usain Bolt is a clear indication of the current administration’s poor management skills.
