Keeling's Caribbean Showcase :Why Do Jamaicans Run So Fast?
Keeling's Caribbean Showcase: Curated by Keeling Beckford

August, 2008. The world watches as the Jamaican sprint team becomes the
sensation of the tournament Olympic games in Beijing. Team Jamaica wins six gold, three silver and two bronze medals. No superpower nation is able to keep up with Jamaica's male and female track stars - the smallest Caribbean island in population won the most medals of all the countries competing in track and field. Why Do Jamaicans Run So Fast? offers a unique insight into Jamaican society at large as it tells the story of the world's strongest sprinting nation. Director Miguel Galofré shows the responses and emotions of the Jamaican people during and after the victories and follows the athletes into their parental home, local sports club and favorite dancehall. The documentary features exclusive interviews with the Jamaican medal winners, their coaches and their fans, backed up by an impressive dancehall, roots and culture soundtrack.
