Where Your Dreams Become Reality

Lowering Crime in Jamaica:
"I would say I am the biggest deal in every sport there is (in Jamaica).Well, I think I have the most coaches in the world. Every day as soon as I step on the street, step out of the car, someone has their own opinion. It is a lot of pressure to be the number one sportsperson in Jamaica and the guy who everyone is looking to for a gold medal and to put Jamaica on top. Everywhere I go in Jamaica, they say 'make sure you win this Olympics'...I don't really know them (gang members) but they are my friends. Whenever I go anywhere, they come up to me, they are the ones who really show the most love and most respect towards me. In 2004, during the Olympic Games, they had less crime in the country because they were watching"

-Asafa Powell, the most popular sportsman in Jamaica.
