Jamaican-born American 400M athlete Sanya Richards-Ross was in her island home Jamaica recently.

The charismatic, well loved track star visited her old elementary school in Jamaica, Vaz Preparatory and donated US$10, 000. (J$900,000)

We love this…. the competition may be intense against Jamaica and the USA on the Track, but Sanya surely never forgets where her true love lies….her island Jamaica!

This is a good look!!
