 "What a Celebration!!!" 50 years of Independence from England and for the second time in London, a Jamaican stuns the world making this Independence celebration 'sweeter than honey'.

This week's Backyardlabrish joins the festivities by honoring another Jamaican trailblazer, Arthur Wint, Jamaica's first 'Golden Giant' in  the 1948 Olympic Games in London. One could say he paved the way for Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake.

Join us: 8:00PM Thursday 8/9/12 as we reveal interesting facts about this Athletic pioneer, Husband, Father, Statesman, and Medical Doctor whose memory we proudly celebrate along with our current Athletic phenoms.
