LONDON, England - Two time Olympic defending 200m champion Veronica Campbell-Brown has admitted she was tired at the Jamaican National Trials in June where for the first time in many years she failed to win either of the 100m or 200m races. At an Adidas press conference in Stratford, London yesterday, Campbell-Brown admitted, "yes I might have been a bit tired at Trials," but said she was happy to have made the team in both events.

Campbell Brown who will be contesting both the 100m and 200m events at the Olympic Games when track and field gets underway tomorrow morning at Olympic Stadium, said after running just the 200m in Beijing four years ago she was focusing on running the double.

The former Vere Technical athlete who has 13 global medals at the senior level, was second in the 100m at Trials behind Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and third in the 200m after being nipped on the line by a late charging Sherone Simpson, both behind Fraser-Pryce.
