Campbell-Brown retains Olympic gold in Women's 200m

(BEIJING, August 21) -- Athens 2004 Olympic Games gold medalist Veronica Campbell-Brown of Jamaica successfully defended her Women's 200m title, crossing the line for gold at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games in a personal best of 21.74 seconds.

Beijing 08 CampbellBrown retains Olympic gold in Womens 200m

 

The 26-year-old was under extra pressure to retain her title after failing to qualify for the 100m at the Jamaican Olympic trials, but she was in control of the 200m race from the gun to the line.

World champion Allyson Felix of the United States finished second behind the Jamaican, as she did at Athens 2004, and continues the tradition of the world champion failing to win the Olympic gold a year later.

Kerron Stewart of Jamaica added another medal to the growing Jamaican total by narrowly grabbing the bronze in 22.00s, just ahead of Muna Lee of the United States, who ran a personal best 22.01s for fourth.
