SCENE & HEARD: Ziggy makes a pitch + Cindy and Sanneta seeing red + ‘Czech-ing’ in with Bolt, and more

THE CHAMP IS HERE: May 18, Czech Republic. Fresh from his light season opener at the Cayman Invitational on Saturday, the World’s Fastest Man jetted off to the Czech Republic to gear up for the fast-approaching Ostrava Diamond League meeting, where he’ll face stiffer competition. Since landing in the European country, the ace sprinter has rapped with journalists, press-conference style, and spent time signing autographs and posing for pictures with some of his young fans in Prague.

BODY OF WORK: May 18, China. Track icon Veronica Campbell-Brown is also gearing up for the big competition coming her way this summer. Showing off her fine form, the veteran sprinter was in Beijing earlier this week to run the 200M at an IAAF World Challenge meet, which she won in 22.29 seconds, equaling her season’s best. (Photo:

ALL OF US: May 18, St. James. Giving Kingston a run for his money these days, Montego Bay is playing host to the 46th meeting of the Board of Governors of the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), with Jamaica’s PM Andrew Holness and finance minister Audley Shaw welcoming the representatives (all pictured here sharing a group portrait) from across the region.

POSITIVE SPIN: May 14, United States. Who knew Ziggy Marley was a baseball fan? The multiple Grammy winner, who is releasing a new album this month, gets in on the action, throwing a ceremonial first pitch before the recent game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in L.A. No word yet on whether Ziggy, who wrote Usain Bolt’s tribute for the TIME 100 honours, is becoming a team co-owner. (Photo:

WE OWN THE NIGHT: May 13, St. Andrew. Smile Jamaica hostess Emprezz Golding and recording star Queen Ifrica made it a girls’ night out to support fellow reggae royalty Richie Spice and Dre Island, who rocked the house at Fuzed, the latest live music showcase to grace the Kingston scene, held on the weekend at Redbones.

POP ART: May 11, Kingston. The power colour was all the rage at last week’s Go Red High Tea, put on by the Heart Foundation of Jamaica to raise awareness for heart disease, inside the Terra Nova Hotel’s Venetian Suite. We totally heart these simplistically gorgeous looks sported by glow girls Cindy Breakspeare and Dr. Sanneta Myrie at the well-supported event. (Photo: Skkan Media)

SING US A SONG: May 11, Kingston. Doing what he does best, balladeer Mario Evon has the ladies in his thrall as he serenades the sizeable audience at the Heart Foundation’s Go Red High Tea last Wednesday. (Photo: Skkan Media)
