MISS LALA'S REVIEW: LONDON OLYMPICS 2012. NO ONE EXPECTED THAT!! ISLAND POWER!! (GRENADA, TRINIDAD & TOBAGO & BAHAMAS)
Now, as I have just bigged up the Jamaicans, I have to give a major shout out to the rest of the Islands in the Carribean. I don't know if the success of Jamaica has had a knock on effect to the other islands in the Carribean, but who would of thought that the islands of Greneda, Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago would grab golds in track and field events.
Olympic champion Kirani James takes home the gold for the 400m
Firstly the shock win of the 400m sprint from a very young Kirani James (only 19 years old) had Grenada losing their minds. He bagged their only gold for the 400m, leaving the rest of the competitors to eat his dust. The Grenadan prime minister declared a half-day holiday after his win, showing how much this meant to the entire nation of Grenada.

Trinidad and Tobago celebrated their win with a gold medal in the Javelin. A huge throw of 84.58m sealed the gold medal for 19 year old Keshon Walcott. Clearly the winning streak was catching as his fellow Trini athletes snatched a bronze medal in the 4x100m, after the Canadians were disqualified.
4x400 Olympic 2012 Gold medallist. Bahamian team, Ramon Miller, Chris Brown, Demetrius Pinder and Micahel Mattieu
The Bahamas came through to win gold in the 4x400m final. They managed to do what no one was thought possible, beating the US 4x400m team. This event has been dominated by the US, but I jumped out my skin when I saw the bright blue of the Bahamas coming through to take the title. Team members managed to clock a time of 2min 56.72sec to seal victory.
So to my Island massive, when you go back home, it's all about celebrating your achievements with a huge PARTY!! Did someone say BACCANAL!!
