CELEBRATION TIME: Fraser-Pryce turns 30 in dazzling style + Bolt brings holiday cheer to Sherwood Content kids

THIS IS 30! Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce capped her supremely memorable year with a glitzy, star-studded birthday bash at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston on Tuesday night, bringing together a host of friends, family and well-wishers, many of them fellow top athletes and sports administrators, to help her celebrate in fine style. Among those in attendance (and fabulously dressed to boot) were Asafa Powell and his main squeeze Alyisha, MVP prez Bruce James and his lady love Pascal, Jordan Forte, Julian Forte, Hansle Parchment and Elaine Thompson, and the list goes on. As TALLAWAH readers are well aware, the sprint queenpin (who dazzled in a jaw-dropping Uzuri gown) recently appeared on our list of the 12 Most Intriguing Jamaicans of 2016 and is gearing up for the early 2017 release of her first autobiographical book, Pryceless Journey

FESTIVE SPIRIT: A man proud of his Trelawny roots and ever ready to give back to the tiny community where he took his first steps, Usain ‘Santa’ Bolt was in Sherwood Content recently for his annual Christmas holiday treat that brought much cheer to the kids and the less fortunate. Food, glorious, food, tonnes of fun activities for the whole family, and lots of presents was the order of the day, which culminated with a night of music. Viewers of the 2016 documentary I Am Bolt got an up-close glimpse at life in the rural district that means so much to the legendary sprinter, who is the favourite to take home Sportsman of the Year honours at the RJR Sports Foundation’s national awards ceremony, scheduled for January 15 at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel. Bolt, who also made TALLAWAH’s list of the 12 Most Intriguing Jamaicans of 2016 is the reigning IAAF World Male Athlete of the Year.
