Jaheel Hyde (born 2 February 1997) is a Jamaican track and field athlete. He was the 2014 world junior champion in the 400 metres hurdles and the 2013 world youth champion in the 110 metres hurdles.

He won a gold medal in the 110 m hurdles at the 2013 World Youth Championships in Athletics in Donetsk, Ukraine, setting a new championship record for the event and coming .01 seconds shy of tying the World Youth Best held by Wilhem Belocian. In 2014, he won the gold medal in the 400 metres hurdles at the World Junior Championships in Eugene, Oregon, then the 100 metres hurdles at the Youth Olympics in Nanjing, China, beating Belocian's World Youth Best with a time of 12.96 seconds.[3][4]

His parents, Lenworth Hyde and Angela Hussett, encouraged their children to participate in sport. His father was an international footballer for Jamaica for over ten years. His older brothers have also been involved in sport: Lenworth Jr. and Jamie both played football for Jamaica at age category level while Julian Hyde won international medals in equestrian sports.[5] Hyde has also played for the Jamaican football team and scored a hat-trick against Bermuda in an under-17s international match in 2012.[6][7]
