Damon McLean '14 has been selected to the Jamaican national team that will compete at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games is said to be on course to be one of the most memorable Commonwealth Games ever. More than 6,500 athletes and officials from 71 countries will compete in 17 sports over 11 days, from July 23-August 3.

McLean won the national title in the triple jump at the Jamaican nationals last weekend with a PR of 16.15, but was not guaranteed a spot on the team. He was notified about his inclusion on July 1.

McLean joins 2014 NCAA women's hammer throw champion Julia Ratcliffe '16 who is representing New Zealand.
