May 4, 2024

ST CATHERINE, Jamaica – The funeral service for internationally recognized athletics analyst Hubert Lawrence is now underway at St Jago’s Cathedral in the Spanish city of St Catherine.

Lawrence died on February 23 at his home in St Catherine. He was 63 years old.

He will be buried in the Meadowrest Memorial Gardens in Spanish Town.

Lawrence began collecting and analyzing track and field data in 1980 and got his first opportunity in the media in the late 1980s at the now defunct Jamaica Record.

He would go on to work for several local and regional media organizations, such as Caribbean Media Corporation and the RJRGLEANER Group, and over the years built a reputation as the authority and most impressive voice on local athletics statistics and analysis.
