Jamaican long distance record holder Kemoy Campbell has left hospital more than two weeks after collapsing during the men's 3,000 meters at the Millrose games in New York.

According to agent Ray Flynn, a procedure to implant an internal defibrillator (ICD) had gone "well".

The 28 year old Campbell, was acting as a pace-setter when he collapsed and fell just beyond the 1,000 metres mark on February 9.

He received treatment at the side of the track before being carried out of the stadium on a stretcher.

Campbell was released from hospital Tuesday.
