Guevara, Campbell added to top field for adidas Track Classic

20 April 2006

Veronica Campbell Veronica Campbell
Mexico’s Ana Guevara, the 2003 World Champion at 400 meters, and Veronica Campbell of Jamaica, the #1 female track athlete at the 2004 Olympic Games, have joined the roster of top international athletes set to compete in the adidas Track Classic on May 21, organizers announced today.

The finals-only event will begin at 12:30 p.m. PT at The Home Depot Center, on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills, and will be broadcast live on ESPN from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. PT. (4 p.m.-6 p.m. ET).

Also added to the dozens of Olympic and World Championship stars aligned to compete are Alistair Cragg of Ireland, the 2005 European Indoor Champion at 3000 meters, and Omar Brown of Jamaica, the 2006 Commonwealth Games 200m gold medalist.

Guevara, 29, is a three-time World Championships medalist, adding a bronze in 2001 and 2005 to her gold from 2003. The Mexican national icon, who also owns a silver medal from the 2004 Olympics and is ranked #3 in the world, is known for her phenomenal 28-meet, three-year winning streak that lasted from July 2001 to July 2004. She last competed here in 2003, and proved a crowd favorite.

A triple medalist in Athens (200m and 4x100m gold, 100m bronze), Campbell was the top female track athlete at the 2004 Olympics. After missing much of last season with an injury, the Jamaican sprint queen won a 200m silver medal at the Commonwealth Games last month. Her winning time of 22.05 in her 200m victory in Athens was the fastest in the world for 2004, and no woman has run faster in the last five years.
