Jamaica's boy's 100 metre gold medal winner, Odane Skeen won his second gold medal at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in Singapore.

Skeen helped the Americas team to win the gold medal in the boy's medley relay final on Monday in a time of 1-minute: 51.38 seconds.

He ran the second leg with Brazil's Caio Dos Santos, the United State's Najee lass and Luguelin Santos of the Dominican Republic to beat the European and Oceania teams.

Meanwhile, Jamaica’s promising youth triple jumper Rochelle Farquharson finished fourth in the girls triple jump "A" final.

She jumped a season's best 12.57 metres behind gold medalist Khadijatsou Sagnia of Sweden in 13.56 metres.

Jamaica's only outright medal is Skeen's gold in the boys' 100 metre final where he clocked a personal best 10.42 seconds on Saturday.
