GOLDEN GIRLS: Aug. 30, China. The fantastic foursome of Christine Day, Shericka Jackson, Stephanie-Ann McPherson and Novlene Williams-Mills had reason to smile on the podium during the medal presentation ceremony for the Women’s 4X400 M final at the IAAF World Championships inside Beijing’s Bird Nest Stadium in China. “Knowing that all four of us were in the 400M Final gave us a lot of confidence,” Williams-Mills told reporters. “It was the four of us in [that] final and the four of us coming back [for the relay]. I couldn’t have done it without them.” Team Jamaica ended the championship with a total of 12 medals (7 gold, 2 silver and three bronze). (Photo: Zimbio.com) 

THE CHOSEN ONES: Aug. 29, Kingston. Over at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel on Saturday night, the radiant Sharlene Radlein, 24, was crowned Miss Universe Jamaica 2015, during a glitzy coronation pageant, where Tasmin Golding (also 24 years old) and Shana Simpson, 27, were the first and second runners-up respectively. As part of the pageant’s rebranding, it has been renamed the Miss Universe Jamaica Beauty, Fashion and Wellness pageant by organizers Uzuri International. (Photo: Facebook) 

FINE PAIR: Aug. 28, Kingston. It’s been quite a year for wonder woman Kaci Fennell, who passed the baton to successor Sharlene Radlein on Sunday night as the Miss Universe Jamaica pageant climaxed on a high note inside the Jamaica Pegasus grand ballroom. It’s anyone’s guess what Kaci will do next, but rest assured she will continue to inspire Jamaicans from all walks.(Photo: Facebook)
