In the pantheon of international track and field, Caribbean athletes have dominated the world stage. In Black Meteors, Basil Ince traces the performance of Caribbean athletes on the international stage from the 1948 London Olympics when they first burst onto the scene to their present dominance in the sprint events with world record and Olympic titles in the 100 m, 200 m and 4 x 100 m relay for men. This is NOT a history of track and from the region in major competitions like the Olympic, World Championships and Commonwealth Games. Ince's description is all-inclusive featuring athletes and athletic performances form the wider Caribbean - Cuba and the Dominican Republic and the French and Dutch-speaking countries of the region, reaching even further to include athletes like Great Britain's Linford Christie of Caribbean parentage who have been medal winners for other countries.
