While the entire world was focusing on the "More popular Jamaican athletes". Most of us forgot that there were other athletes participating in the Beijing Champs. 

Ricardo Chambers is one of those athletes. The Olympian participated in the 4x400 relay in Beijing last month placing fourth. Now that the Beijing Champs are over and he is done representing his country it's back to reality. 

The athlete is now struggle and is unable to support himself for the upcoming Olympic year. This is a sad situation knowing that the Jamaican government treat their citizen and the once representing their country so horrible. 

A gofundme account was created to help finance the athlete in the upcoming Olympic year. Any form of contribution is appreciate.
