The Olympics is next year in Tokyo, Japan, and based on what we have seen at this World Championships, there are a lot of positives to take away.
While we expect a good show from our track and field participants, especially the women, Jamaica is again set to step outside the usual forte, as Danusia Francis will strut her stuff in the gymnastics arena.
The 25-year-old earned one of 20 automatic spots to compete at the Olympics while competing at the 2019 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Stuttgart, Germany, recently. She has become the second Jamaican to achieve such a feat behind Toni Ann Williams, who did it at the last Olympics that was held in Rio de Janeiro.
Although Francis was born in England, she is Jamaican through her father. And the support that she will get locally is expected to boil over when she goes to Tokyo clad in the black, green and gold of the super island nation nestled in the Caribbean.
Since her qualification, Francis has taken to social media to express gratitude for all the support she has received.
BUZZ congratulates Danusia Francis on her achievement, and we hope that she will do well in Tokyo.
