While a trip to South America had always fancied Monica Stone-Brown, it certainly was not on the balance books for the accounting professional who hails from the sunshine city of Portmore.

Now, just four weeks away from her scheduled arrival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Stone-Brown is still "pinching herself" following a call from telecommunications firm FLOW informing her that she had won a trip for two.

She will have the privilege of witnessing one of the most anticipated events in the upcoming Rio 2016 Olympic Games the 100m men's and women's final where Jamaican athletes Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce are expected to dominate.

"It's still like I am dreaming," said the lucky winner who works at the Excelsior High School in Kingston.

She shared that she was asleep, recovering from a surgical procedure, when she got the call.

"I almost hung up on the lady because I said this must be a scam," she laughed.

Stone-Brown asked the caller to hold while she quickly consulted with her son Kirk, about how she should proceed with the call.
