Have you ever wondered why Jamaica produces some of the worlds most successful track athletes? The running world needs to learn from Jamaica’s philosophies when it comes to training, competition, nutrition, biomechanics and way of life. From an early age, most children growing up in Jamaica realise that being “fass” not only brings the type of unprecedented success only imagined in their dreams, but is one of a few options that would give them an opportunity to rise above their current living conditions and change their world forever.

Jamaica has a love affair with sprinting. The people of this tiny island watch track on television, read about track, argue about track at local gatherings, bet on track and fantasize about being a part of track glory and fame. With this strong foundation being built around the youth of Jamaica, the chances of a Jamaican becoming the next fastest man or woman on the planet is very likely.

BORN TO RUN assembles a host of world class track and field experts, athletes, and coaches to showcase several Jamaican sprinters that were able to turn their dreams into reality. Featuring appearances from Usain Bolt (current World Record Holder in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relays, six-time Olympic Champion and Fastest Person in the World), Yohan Blake (current World Champion in 100m and Second Fastest Person in the World) and Shelly-Ann Fraser (two-time Olympic Champion). This documentary will give countless fans and aspiring athletes worldwide an intimate look at a country that is truly built for speed.
