Having settled into her new home in Atlanta, Veronica Campbell Brown is looking forward to a fruitful 2010 season after a few set backs because of injuries last year.
“A new year brings new challenges and of course new success I am hoping you and I will have more of the latter,” the Jamaican wrote in her online diary on the IAAF website
“The year closed for me somewhat quietly here in Georgia as my husband Omar and training mate Shereefa Lloyd went to dinner then to our church to bring in 2010. ”
The Olympic two-time 200m champion took a trip to Singapore to help promote the first Youth Olympics in what she said was an “exchange program.”
“Prior to that there was nothing quiet about my December. Early in the month I made my first trip to Singapore.
“My training partner, Dexter Lee and I as well as Asafa Powell went to the Asian island on behalf of the Jamaican government in what I can best describe as an exchange program.”
She then made a quick return to attend the wedding of fellow Jamaican and former teammate Steve Mullings.
“I also took a quick trip back home for Steve Mullings’ wedding. Steve and I attended the same high school (Vere Technical) and junior college (Barton).”
