Sprint hurdler Ronald Levy has pulled out of Jamaica’s team to the North American, Central American and Caribbean (NACAC) Championships in Toronto, Canada from August 10-12.

The Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association said that Levy pulled out due to an injury.

Meanwhile,  Jonielle Smith is down to compete in the 100 metres, a decision which was made following the withdrawal of double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson, who ended her season late July as a result of an injured Achilles tendon.

Jodean Williams will now contest 200m, replacing CAC Games champion Sashalee Forbes, who is nursing a slight injury.

Also out of the team are Cameron Walker-Shepherd (pole vault), Lloydiricia Cameron (shot put), Shadae Lawrence (discus) and Kateema Riettie (javelin).
