Triple Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt and three other individual Beijing winners headline the Jamaican team for next month's Athletics World Championships in Berlin, the international governing body said on Tuesday.
Bolt, who set world records in the 100 and 200m and led Jamaica to a world record in the 4x100m relay in Beijing, will be joined by fellow gold winners Shelly-Ann Fraser (100m), Veronica Campbell-Brown (200m) and Melanie Walker (400m hurdles).
Campbell-Brown is also the women's 100m world champion.
Former 100m record holder Asafa Powell and Michael Frater, who won gold in the 4x100m relay, will also compete at the Aug 15-23 championships, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) said on its website (www.iaaf.org).
