Meet Veronica Campbell-Brown, the beautiful Jamaican sprinter. See photos, video and a biography of Veronica here.

Veronica Campbell-Brown ran the 100 meters in 10.91 seconds today at the Reebok Grand Prix, posting the fastest time in the world so far in 2008.

“I’m running good,” Campbell-Brown said. “My object is to run faster than I did last year. I accomplished that and I’m happy.”

Campbell-Brown will definitely be the one to watch this summer at the Beijing Olympics.

As a biography, Veronica Brown was born on May 15, 1982 in Trelawny, Jamaica. She has 9 siblings. Veronica attended Barton County Community College in Great Bend, Kansas. She was a track star while there and set several records for the school. She graduated from Barton County in 2002 with an Associates Degree and went on to the University of Arkansas, where she once again was a track star.

At the 2004 Athens Olympics, she won gold in the 200 m and 4×100 m relay. She received a bronze medal in the 100 meters.

At the 2005 World Championships, Veronica won the silver in the 100 meters and won silver again in the 4×100 m relay.

She won three medals at the 2007 World Championships in Osaka, Japan – gold in the 100 meters, a silver medal in the 200 meters, and another silver medal in the 4×100 meter relay.

Veronica married Jamaican sprinter Omar Brown in late 2007. He attended the University of Arkansas as well.
