Injury to Usain Bolt at track championships ends Jamaican’s brilliant careerThe Jamaican great crumpled to the track with a left-leg injury as he was chasing a final gold medal for the Jamaican 4x100-meter relay team at the world championships.Having to make up lots of ground on the anchor leg, Bolt suddenly screamed and stumbled as he came down with his golden farewell shattered by the first injury he has experienced at a major competition.[...] Tori Bowie was the unlikely first double gold medalist at the championships, anchoring the U.S. team to the 4x100-meter women’s relay title ahead of Britain and Jamaica.[...] Allyson Felix, running the second leg on the winning team, earned a record 15th medal at the world championships in a career dating to 2005.If Bolt and Farah were about farewells, the decathlon was about renewal in the wake of the retirement of two-time Olympic and world champion Ashton Eaton.There was at least one veteran who did produce as Australia’s Sally Pearson got another gold medal at the Olympic Stadium in London after missing much of the past two seasons because of injury.

- Jamaican resort stay scrapped over Zika
By Christopher Elliott - Friday Dec 23, 2016
Last year, I booked a vacation at Sandals Ochi Beach Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, for my pregnant girlfriend and me.After news of the Zika virus broke last January, we contacted Sandals to get a refund for the trip because of the seriousness of the health advisory.The Sandals reps were not swayed, and in an effort to find a solution, we temporarily accepted their idea of pushing the trip back a year, which cost us a fee.[...] concerns about Zika have only intensified.If you cancel 30 to 15 days before arrival, you’ll receive 50 percent of the purchase price, including any applicable airline fees.Sandals and your travel agent probably also recommended travel insurance.Some insurance, such as the pricier, cancel-for-any-reason variety, might have helped you secure a partial refund.[...] most normal insurance, which would have excluded any pre-existing medical conditions, would have been useless.Who should take the financial loss for the Zika outbreak?The company says it agreed to refund your room upgrade fee and a private candlelight dinner you’d paid for.
