Who was Germaine Mason

Who was Germaine Mason

Mason, a Jamaican-born athlete who represented Great Britain in 2006 and won silver at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, was at the helm of a bike convoy on the Palisadoes main road in Kingston, when he lost control of his bike, reports He was reportedly riding with numerous high-profile international athletes including eight-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt, 100-meter silver medalist Michael Frater and retired Jamaican footballer Ricardo Gardner.
The Jamaica Constabulary wrote on Twitter: “Germaine Mason, 34, Jamaican-born athlete and former national high jumper, died in a motorcycle crash this Thursday 4:20am.”



Mason nabbed bronze for Jamaica in 2003 at the world indoor championships. He was later eligible to represent Britain because his father was born in London, and he switched teams two years before the Beijing Olympics, reports BBC

Mason qualified for Britain by virtue of a British father, who, confusingly, lived in Jamaica while his Jamaican mother lived in west London. He held a British passport all his life but decided to switch allegiances after being struck by a serious knee ligament injury in 2004. He made his GB debut in the 2006 European Cup.


IIn 2002 he first met Jamaica's Olympic mega-champion Usain Bolt, the world's fastest man.  
The pair has developed a firm and long standing friendship and it was Bolt who was one of the first to congratulate Germaine on his Olympic silver medal.  
A fall-out with Coach Stephen Francis and persuasion from his mother led him in 2006 to take up the option offered by his dual nationality and represent Great Britain

Always so sad to see when someone young passes away unexpectedly. Who knows what all this talented young man could have accomplished with his life. May he rest in peace.
