Veronica Campbell-Brown Wins Tyson Invitational 60m Dash

Sprint ace Veronica Campbell-Brown won the women’s 60-meter dash in 7.15 seconds at the Tyson Invitational Friday night at the University of Arkansas.

The three-time Olympic gold medalist from Jamaica ran the 10th-fastest time in the world this year and earned her first indoor victory of the season.

Campbell-Brown, an Arkansas alum, ran the event for the second time this season after finishing second to American Lisa Barber in the 60 last week at the Millrose Games in New York.

She is competing in the event for the first time since 2006, when she set the Tyson Invitational record.

American Michael Roger won the men’s race in 6.56secs, beating Jamaica’s Dexter Lee, who posted 6.66.
