Several Jamaican high schools have received additional equipment support from the internationally acclaimed brand, PUMA through their Jamaica Project.
The project is a planned partnership to assist Jamaica?s track and field athletes to produce more of the outstanding achievements which were evident at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the World Championships in Berlin the following year.

PUMA has been sponsoring with cash and kind Jamaica?s world level athletes in several sports for a number of years and this latest initiative was aimed at giving support at the developmental level.

PUMA?s Jamaica Project Manager, former athlete, Juliet Campbell traveled to the schools for the presentations and was very impressed by the response, ?It was indeed pleasing to see the different teams assemble for the presentation and hear the athletes and their coaches express their enthusiasm and appreciation for the Puma support. There was clear evidence of a high degree of motivation, it tells me that the future of the country?s track and field is secure.?
