Campbell opens season with 400m relay leg

29 March 2007

By Gary Smith

Jamaica's Olympic 200m champion Veronica Campbell made a return to the track after injuries when she competed as part of a relay team at the Annual ASU Invitational Meet, held at the Joe Selleh Track at Sun Angel Stadium.

The Commonwealth Games silver medallist ran the third leg on a 4x400m relay side, which finished second to Arizona State in 3:36.68. The invitational team also included Jamaicans Michelle Burgher and Shereefa Lloyd.

After struggling to find her form during the outdoor season last year, Campbell suffered further setbacks after sustaining an injury to her quadricep at the Gateshead British Grand Prix in early June, which forced her to take the bulk of the season to rehabilitate.

The World Championships silver medallist sat out the entire 2007 indoor season to see to it that she recovers well for the forthcoming outdoor term, which is expected to be a busy and challenging one.

With Sherone Simpson and Kerron Stewart in such great form the Jamaican squad, with a fit Campbell and perhaps Aleen Bailey or Simone Facey, will be hard to beat this year's IAAF World Championships in Osaka, Japan, from 25 August to 2 September.
