Bless up from Jamaica
My name is Mario (kingmarioxv) and I am proud to represent our little island of Jamaica (I seem to be the only person from JA so far .
Apart from cricket, football, TRACK AND FIELD (we currently have the 2 fastest men in the world; watch out Beijing 2008!), there is also badminton which has been experiencing steady growth in the past 5 years of so.
I am 21 yrs old at this time of writing and am currently ranked #6 in our D division here in JA (we run from A-national to D-beginners). Although I have been playing for going on 9 years now, I have only had a coach since late 2006 and only started playing in tourneys since last year. I'd like to think of myself as an intermediate player now and I hope to move up the divisions in the future.
I hope that badminton will continue to grow and like Martial Arts (Jamaica has won quite a few tournaments in the past two years on the world level including beating China and Japan ) we will soon produce top class athletes that will be on the world stage.
As I always say think positive and I look forward to enjoying this forum more and more.

Welcome to BCBF, Mario!!
I remember before that there was another person from Jamaica, with an AR100F. :O
I do hope that Jamaica will be stronger in badminton too, so that this sport won't just be dominated by asian counties!
Hope you enjoy your time here at BC..

Welcome to BF!
Looking forward to a possible "lightning bolt" 100 & 200m double in BJ.
Hoping the Bolt will ease the pressure from Asafa.

Welcome to this forum, Mario! You will find loads of badminton here.
Yeah, wishing both Jamaican sprinters Usain Bolt and Asafa Powell will bright in Beijing Games! You must be proud for their achievement...

@ limsy - I heard about something to that effect a couple years ago but I don't think it's still going on.
@everyone - Thanks for the welcome.
