Islandistas on the Rise Sports

Islandistas Shelly-Ann and VCB shine at the Olympics!

It’s like deja vu all over again – here we are blogging about two of our favourite sporting islandistas – Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Veronica Campbell Brown.

Just like we did in 2008.

And in 2009.

Because that’s just how our islandistas do it!

Shelly-Ann just gave me goosebumps and my throat is still raw from screaming my head off from her amaaaaazing run, clawing her gold medal back from Carmelita Jeter who looked set to run off with it.


But Shelly-Ann is a big occasion woman and she tun up di ting when it counted and clocked a stunning time of 10.75 to win the gold medal.

Veronica Campbell-Brown was solid as a rock to win the bronze in 10.81 – because VCB doesn’t go home without medals.

Islandista is so very, very proud of these tremendous islandistas! Onward to the rest of the sprints and further islandista domination!


By Me

island ~ ista
From Latin -ista via Portuguese -ista
one who follows a principle; an adept.

As an islandista I live, embody, exude the spirit of the Caribbean islands.
