Jamaica's team captain Olympian sprinter Michael Frater when quizzed about his thoughts on Justin Gatlin being abe to compete at the games stated, "It is what it is, he tested positive twice, but there is nothing we can do about that, that's in the past, it's just about competing at the highest level for us. We know what we are about and we have done it repeatedly."
Frater paused, as if searching for more to say before adding: "We are not concerned about Justin Gatling right now, we are here to compete at the highest level and do our best."
Jamaica, he said, had taken what the American thought was their's, and as such, "it is us against the world now, everyone is trying to take us down, the mighty US was up there (at the top) but we are there now.
"We have targets on our backs now after what we did in (the 2008 Olympic Games in) Beijing and in the subsequent championships. The US was the sprint kings and we took them down, so we know everyone is coming after us and we are very prepared and are able to handle anything they shoot at us."
