Team Jamaica have held an open training session in Birmingham.

Hundreds of people turned up to watch the atheletes at Birmingham University a few days before they head to London for the opening ceremony.

The sun shone as the crowds cheered on the athletes.

ON 25th July a concert will be held at the Symphony Hall where celebrities like Beverley Knight will perform. Leading Jamaican athletes, music stars and artists will join forces to celebrate the Caribbean island’s 50th anniversary of independence.

Taking a break from the pre-Olympic training camp at the University of Birmingham, Jamaica’s gold medal hopefuls will be entertained by a host of stars including Jamelia, Musical Youth, Jaki Graham and Beverley Knight.
