BARCELONA, Spain - Jamaica’s 400m hurdler Javarn Gallimore who collapsed after the first round heat on today’s second day of the 14th IAAF World Junior Championships in Barcelona, Spain is back with the team and is in good health.

A source close to the athlete told the Jamaica Observer that Gallimore reportedly felt "dizzy while walking back to the warm up area" but is recovered and feeling a lot better after been seen at the medical centre at the Olympic stadium.

The Jamaica College athlete was second in his heat and qualified for tomorrow's semi-finals of the intermediate hurdle.

Meanwhile there has not be any word about the condition of 800m runner Semoya Campbell who was taken to an area hospital here after complaining of feeling ill and reportedly had problems standing up on her own while making her way to the stadium where she was due to run the semi-finals.

She was accompanied to the medical facility by members of the team’s management as well as team physician Dr Lincoln Cox, it is understood.
