Edwin Allen's Cameron fit and ready to go
PHILADELPHIA, USA — Edwin Allen's Saqukine Cameron is fit and ready to help her team to what is expected to be a successful participation in the 120th Penn Relays Carnival that gets under way this morning at Franklin Field in Philadelphia.
She pulled up in the final of the Under-20 girls 200m at the Carifta Games in Martinique and was taken off the track by medical personnel, but coach Michael Dyke told the Jamaica Observer yesterday she was okay and would be able to take part this weekend.
"It was only a slight cramp," he said. "She felt it and stopped immediately so there was no damage done and she will be able to compete this weekend."
Cameron joined her teammates in practice in cold windy conditions yesterday at a field near the Team Jamaica Bickle base in Essington, near Philadelphia and went through her routine without showing any discomfort.
There were concerns as Cameron, who is expected to compete in both the 4x100m and 4x400m relays this weekend, pulled up in the race on Monday and had to be taken off the track.
Cameron ran the third leg on the Edwin Allen team that ran a high school World Record 43.95 seconds at the UTech Classics two weeks ago at the National Stadium.
