If you have ever wondered how much entertainers follow this staple of national track and field? THE STAR spoke with some of the country's entertainers about the ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls' Championships which ends today. Here are their pics for championship honours and their favourite athletes and Champs memories.

 

Vegas: I have not been on top of my athletics (laughs). When I used to follow it, I never had no special athlete or anything like that. I went there a few times like when Bolt was running and stuff like that, but them always beat the hell outta my school, Oberlin High, so it was not a big interest of mine.

2017 Picks: Calabar (Boys) and Holmwood (Girls)

Razor B: I love Champs! Too bad me nah go deh a Yaad. It a go miss me again this year. I love track and field. I am obsessed. The youth from Calabar, Christopher Taylor, is a good athlete, so me a look out for big things from him. I used to run, so I know talent. Me used to follow Asafa when him a run at Champs. In first form, his brother Donovan Powell, was the star athlete from St Jago (Razor B's alma mater).

2017 Picks: St Jago for both the girls and boys' title.

Esco:Since my alma mater, Campion is not in it, I don't really pick a side. I wanted KC to win last year until I saw the 4x400m. The Calabar yute who ran the last leg ... he won the race and me as a fan. I been following Champs since McGyver.

2017 Picks: Calabar

Foota Hype: Mi nuh follow Champs to the T innu because me always busy, so me can't get fi follow it the right way. A Calabar me used to go, so mi always know Calabar ago win. All Calabar athletes are my athletes, so me just a look forward to the win from C-Bar.

2017 Picks: Calabar (Boys) and Vere Technical (Girls)

Dutty Berry: I'm gonna say my alma mater, Excelsior High, will win this year. They are gonna surprise people this year on the girl's side. Outside of that, C-bar. Anneisha McLaughlin was a star athlete. She made Holmwood the school to beat back in the day. And all the colourful hairstyles.

2017 Picks: Calabar (Boys) and Excelsior High School (Girls)

Macka Diamond:I don't really watch individuals, just school names. KC as usual for the boys ... Calabar good too, but a KC. For the girls, it look sticky. I like more than one girls' school for the win. Edwin Allen and Holmwood ago battle it out. I can't wait!
