Jamaica primary participates in athletics (Track and Field). In the 2004 games, they won 2 gold, 1 silver, and 2 bronze medals in athletics and they have won many medals in Olympic athletics. Over the past three Summer Olympics they have also sent competitors in Badminton, sailing, triathlon, swimming, and boxing but athletics is where they excel.
