Campbell-Brown takes the 200 meter gold


By: Devon Anderson and Dwight Fraser

Jamaica’s domination of the sprint events at this year’s Beijing Olympics was completed today as Veronica Campbell-Brown took an impressive gold in the women’s 200 meters.

She beat the United States’ Allison Felix into a silver medal position with fellow Jamaican Kerron Stewart claiming the bronze.

The defending champion produced a smooth performance across the finish line in a time of 21.74 seconds.

Jamaica has now won all four of the individual sprint events. Campbell-Brown’s victory will mean that the U.S. team will return home without a gold medal in the individual sprint events for the first time since they boycotted the 1980 Moscow Olympics.

Yardflex would like to congratulate Veronica Campbell-Brown on her victory.
