Few people would argue that athletics and especially sprinting is the sport that Jamaica is most famous for worldwide.
The Caribbean country’s track and field athletes- both men and women- have won many Olympic medals over the years
It’s not by accident, according to Michael Fennel, President of the Jamaica Olympic Association and member of the International Olympic Committee's Women and Sport Commission.
He says equal opportunities are offered to both genders because of the country’s current sports policy.
Mr. Fennel spoke to Jocelyne Sambira on the margins of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) about how sport can help promote gender equality.
