THE BUZZ REPORT: Yohan Blake set to compete in Qatar + Curdella Forbes’ new novel due out this month

Double Olympic silver-medallist Yohan Blake has confirmed that he will run his first big race of the year at the Doha Diamond League meet in Qatar on May 10. Blake, who recently lent his star power to a Road to Champs 2013 campaign by mobile giants LIME, will be competing in the 100 M. 

Speaking of Jamaican athletes, according to this week's sporting headlines Steve Mullings will have to find a different profession as his lifetime ban from track-and-field has been upheld by the Jamaica Anti-Doping Corporation (JADCO). So what's next for the embattled sprinter? Stay tuned...

Author Curdella Forbes will be launching her new novel, Ghosts, at the UWI Mona on March 14, while poet Ralph Thompson’s latest collection, Taking Words for a Walk, will be launched on March 24. Dr. Velma Pollard and Prof. Eddie Baugh also have new books due out this month.
