Thank you for your support of King of the Ring 2023 - Throws-Only Meet. It was an incredible experience to witness athletes from across the island show off their strength and agility as they threw themselves into the competition with tenacity and fervour. All competitors displayed a sense of sportsmanship that made for an inspiring atmosphere, full of camaraderie and passionate support. The rings of Excelsior remain a happy hunting ground for Jamaica’s discus throwers.

On February 11th at the 18th staging of the King of the Ring Traves Smikle threw the world lead of 68.14m in the men's discus, finishing second in the event was World Championship silver medallist Fedrick Dacres with a season’s best of 66.32m with Olympic finalist Chad Wright 3rd also with a season’s best of 59.74m.  The meet was highlighted by some sterling performances.  With over 600 entries, King of the Ring is undoubtedly the largest ‘Throws Only’ meet in the Caribbean and possibly the world.   It was largely supported by most of the throws fraternity in Jamaica and continues to be an incubator for the next generation of Jamaican throwers. 

We are grateful for your products and promotions which helped make this event possible and we look forward to continuing our fruitful partnership in the future.
