Sheri Ann Brooks still buzzing, says coach

2 August 2008

By Gary Smith

Despite being below the radar this season, Jamaica's Commonwealth Games champion Sheri Ann Brooks has the confidence to get back to the top of her game once again, this according her coach Marlon Malcolm.

Brooks, a member of Jamaica's world sprint relay silver medal team from Osaka, Japan last summer, has been shadowed by the performances of her fellow Jamaican countrywomen -- led by Olympic 200m champion Veronica Campbell-Brown, but Malcolm said her confidence has not dropped.

"She is not one of the main attentions this season with everyone running 10-point this season," Malcolm said. "[But] Brooks is getting ready for another big run in Beijing on the Olympic 400m relay team for Jamaica."

Brooks, former NCAA 200m champion while attending Florida International University, ran quick 10.25-seconds on a relay leg this season and Malcolm believes she can get even faster.

"She is in good health and she shows that when she ran an outstanding 10.25sec split on the 4x 100m in Stockholm on the 22nd of July," he said on Friday.

"Sheri Ann is looking to run even faster at the Games in China."

Brooks, who owns personal best of 11.05secs, achieved in an outstanding season last year in the 100m and 22.70secs for the 200m this season, will join Campbell-Brown, Kerron Stewart, Shelly-Ann Fraser, Sherone Simpson and another runner in the women's 4x100m.

Jamaica is the reigning Olympic champion, having won the title in Athens in 2004.
