Athletics

Jamaica qualified 50 athletes (25 men and 25 women).[4] However, only 41 (21 men and 20 women) eventually competed as the organizers had to reduce the number of athletes competing because too many had been entered into the competition. Athlete Jonique Day was named to the team in the women's 4 × 400 m relay event, but did not compete in the semifinals or final.
