TO THE FINISH: True to their word, Jamaica's senior netballers — the Sunshine Girls — secured a medal for the country at the recent Commonwealth Games, triumphing over their English counterparts in the keenly contested bronze-medal playoff. This photo (taken by UK-based photographer Hannah Peters) speaks volumes of the unsurprisingly jubilant celebration that ensued. For these talented girls, the victory will go a long way in not only keeping team morale on a high but also boost their profile internationally as the world's top teams now turn their attention to upcoming test series and the next world championships.
FACING THE MUSIC: Great collaborations can happen anywhere. A couple of weeks after raising the temperature in MoBay at Reggae Sumfest, Sean Paul (left) rocked out with Latin heartthrob Enrique Iglesias and Descember Bueno on Emancipation Day as BC's Good Morning America brought summer concert madness to Rumsey Playfield in New York's Central Park.
WHAT COMES NATURALLY: Though there more than a few quibbles from demanding patrons over the degree of produce and livestock diversity on view at this year's showcase the 2014 iteration of the Denbigh Agricultural Show & Farmer's Market was a resounding success over the Emancipation Day weekend, buoyed by solid crowd support and non-stop lively entertainment for the whole family. The Jamaica Agriculture Society (JAS), with the aid of corporate sponsors, continue to impressively maintain the event's appeal and proud legacy, heading into a seventh decade of championing the best of what we grow and eat here at home.
