ON THE SCENE: Chris Martin + Jaunel McKenzie + Marlon Samuels + Oraine Barrett + The Jolly Boys + Usain Bolt

REP YOUR COLOURS: Ahead of this weekend's much-anticipated track & field championships at the National Stadium, top sprinter Usain Bolt was recently in front of the cameras to film a new Gatorade commercial at the UWI Mona/Usain Bolt track. Carlo Redwood, Pepsi Jamaica's head of marketing, was also on hand to witness the project come to life.

DO IT WITH A SMILE: Not even the tough challenge of later facing rivals India at Sabina Park could deter West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels from kicking it with the student body at Kingston's Genesis Academy (an institution for special-needs students) during a recent trip organized by sponsors Digicel.

SADE'S SOLDIERS: Who wouldn't want to hit the road with a class act like Sade? The ethereal R&B-soul chanteuse had the good sense to invite the veterans of The Jolly Boys to flavour the European leg of her word tour with some reggae and mento. Certainly a match made in some musical heaven.

TOP MODELS: The just-concluded 2011 renewal of Caribbean Fashion Week (CFW) re-introduced local style-heads to Pulse's stellar roster of runway talent like Oraine Barrett, Jaunel McKenzie (rocking a foxy new look) and Khalil Marks. Strike a pose!

STAR STRUCK: Entertainer Chris Martin was among the celebs who brought joy to the students of the Genesis Academy in Kingston last week during a visit to the institution organized by Digicel. And from the looks of things, Martin was a hit with his young audience.
