Kareem Streete-Thompson (born March 30, 1973) is an athlete specializing in the long jump and the 100 metres. He was born in Ithaca, New York.

Career[edit]

Although born in the USA, he lived his first 18 years in the Cayman Islands. Originally he represented the Cayman Islands, then USA, and then from 1999 the Cayman Islands again.

Two times in the role, he was awarded the Austin Sealy Trophy for the most outstanding athlete of the 1989 CARIFTA Games and 1990 CARIFTA Games.[1][2]

In the 2004 Summer Olympics, he participated in the 100 metres, achieving a second place and a season's best time in the heat from which he qualified, before exiting the competition in the second round with a fifth-placed finish. In the long jump competition, he did not qualify for the final.
