SuperClubs All Inclusive Resorts Congratulates Jamaican Olympic Medalists With Complimentary Stay

KINGSTON, JAMAICA--(Marketwire - August 18, 2008) - The Jamaican based SuperClubs family of all inclusive resorts announced its congratulations to Jamaica's Olympic medalists by offering a complimentary one week stay for two at any of the SuperClubs resorts. Jamaica swept the medals Sunday evening in the women's 100 meter race just a day after fellow Jamaican Usain Bolt broke the world record in the men's 100 meter, becoming the fastest man on the planet.

"We're just exploding with pride and joy at our athletes' phenomenal performance so far, and we want to show how much it means to us here in Jamaica," said Zein Issa, SuperClubs VP Marketing.

Last night in Beijing, the Jamaican women's team stole the spotlight of the world stage in the 100 meter sprint. Shelly-Ann Frazier clocked a personal best 10.78 seconds, claiming Olympic gold, while in a blur of yellow and green, Sherone Simpson and Kerron Stewart shared the silver, finishing just two tenths of a second behind. Jamaica's sweep of the top three spots in the 100 meter was the first since the United States men's team did it at the Stockholm Games in 1912 and marked a profound achievement for the Caribbean country. On the same track just a day before, Jamaican Usain Bolt set a new world record, covering the 100 meter distance in just 9.69 seconds.

"These athletes are truly outstanding, and our nation is overflowing with pride," echos John Issa, executive chairman of SuperClubs. "It's both our honor and our pleasure to welcome our heroes back from their exceptional performance in Beijing."

To help celebrate the homecoming of Jamaica's Olympic medal winners, SuperClubs is extending a complimentary week's stay for two to any Jamaican medalist at the SuperClubs all inclusive travel resort of the athlete's choice, Grand Lido Resorts & Spas, Breezes, Hedonism or Starfish Resorts.

The SuperClubs family includes destinations in Jamaica as well as the Bahamas, Curacao, Dominican Republic and Brazil, and every visit is Super Inclusive. Guests receive all meals, snacks and premium cocktails, use of sports facilities including equipment rentals and instruction, entertainment and recreation, and all taxes. And no tipping is permitted.
