This Wordless Wednesday, we feature a young Veronica Campbell competing in the 1999 Boys and Girls Championships at the National Stadium in Kingston. The Vere Technical High School star athlete competed in her last Champs in 2001, winning the sprint double in 11.13 seconds (100m) and 22.92 (200m). She is now Mrs Veronica Campbell-Brown, affectionately known as VCB, and has gone on to become one of the most decorated athletes in the world, with gold medals at every level of international competition in the sprints. Campbell-Brown is now facing a disciplinary hearing, after testing positive for a banned diuretic earlier this year.
