Title: JAAA National Senior Championships To Feature Top Olympians On Live Stream


CaribPR Wire, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. June 24, 2011: Asafa Powell and Veronica Campbell are among the top runners set for the the 2011 JAAA/Supreme Ventures Limited National Senior Championship.

 Athletic fans globally can now get a front seat to the action via live stream today, Friday June 24. The event will feature the semi-finals and finals for the 100 meters.  Over the next three days fans will see the best of the Powell and Campbell as well as Yohan Blake, Steve Mullings, Micheal Frater, Sherone Simpson, Kerron Stewart, Brigitte Foster-Hylton, Jermaine Gonzalez and Nesta Carter among others.

The meet set for the Jamaica National Stadium from June 23-June 26, 2011, is streaming live all four days and will also be available on Smartphones, bringing the world to shores of Jamaica via New Media Technologies.

 JAAA describes this as a unique opportunity to again witness Jamaica’s best athletes as they vie for their position at the 2011 World Championships.  The live stream will be broadcasted on www.jaaa.tv and www.jaaa.tv/mobile.

 “The first day of our live stream showed the commitment to our Jamaican athletes and proved that the world is watching us!!” commented Eugene Folkes, CEO of Telegens Inc. the local partner involved in providing the end-to-end on-line service.

With spaces on Jamaica’s team to the IAAF World Championships in Daegu up for grabs and unlike last year’s low-keyed championships which was void of some of the island’s top athletics stars, this year’s trials is promising a lot of fireworks, with preliminary entries showing a number of top athletes already registered to compete.

The live stream audience will be treated to two special features. The first feature will be the ability to rewind the live stream – so if you have missed a particular race you can rewind while you are watching the live stream. 

The second feature is your free access to the On Demand version which will be available within 72 hours post the closing of the meet on June 26th, 2011.

Online visitors will have the option of either purchasing a daily ticket for U.S $5.99  or a four-day package for U.S$14.99. Mobile users will be able to test the stream first and then have the option to view the live stream for $5.99 for four days.
