PCJ extends support for Jamaican IAAF event

The Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ) has extended its sponsorship of the Jamaica International Invitational Meet track and field event for a further three years.

The company will invest some JAM$15 million (US$131,000) in supporting the event, which features on the IAAF World Challenge series, until 2017.

"Last year, the PCJ responded to our request for sponsorship, which ensured a wonderful 2014 event,” said Dr Warren Blake, the meet’s chairman.

“This multi-year partnership speaks volumes about their commitment to Jamaica and Jamaican athletics and we are definitely grateful."

This year’s Jamaica International Invitational Meet is scheduled to take place at the National Stadium in Kingston on 9th May. American sprinter Tyson Gay is confirmed to race.
