Blake Defeats Bolt, Fraser-Price Defeats Campbell -Brown In 100m & 200m

(IAAF Athletics): Kingston, Jamaica - The stage was set and the fans came out in their numbers on Sunday (1) when it would take a real betting man to go against Usain Bolt and Veronica Campbell-Brown in the men’s and women’s 200m finals. However, while both Bolt and Campbell-Brown were seeking to avenge their 100m defeats, Yohan Blake and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce were determined to cop the sprint double, which they achieved to close out a great Supreme Ventures-sponsored Jamaican Championships, or better yet, set them both up for Olympic glory.

Fraser-Pryce approaching 22-second barrier, Campbell-Brown third

And, on the night in question, 7:15 to be exact, Fraser-Pryce, like in the 100m two nights before where she dropped a national record 10.70, was at her very best again, untested by Jamaica’s sprint queen Campbell-Brown. Both got out well, but Fraser-Pryce saw the straight first, and despite Campbell-Brown closing slightly in the latter stages, she was not going to catch the winner. Fraser-Pryce crossed the line in a personal best 22.10 seconds.
