Two-time Olympic Games 200m gold medallist Veronica Campbell-Brown, in her first outdoor meet of the 2014 season, said they want to give the fans at tomorrow’s (7 May 2014) Cayman Invitational, something special.

Campbell-Brown, who is down to take on the likes of Americans Allyson Felix and Miki Barber, along with Muriel Ahoure in the women’s 100m, said “you can expect us to compete hard.”
Asha Phillip, Cristina Santos, Trisha Ann Hawthorne and Cache Armbriste are also listed for the women’s 100m.

"Our objective is to give the fans a good show and we are just hoping that we can run fast, so everybody will be excited and pumped up by the results. That is our hope, so we will see tomorrow,” said Campbell-Brown, the 2011 World Championships 200m champion at the press conference on Tuesday.
Campbell-Brown, who competed in only the World Indoor Championships in March where she finished out of the top three, said she is ready for the competition here in Grand Cayman.
"Every time I go to compete I expect my competitors to bring there A game, so I make sure I am ready and focused,” explained the two-time Olympic Games 200m champion. 

She added: “Expect good results tomorrow, it's a very talented field, and as you know we females love to compete against each other, we don’t like to shy away from competition … we like the competition because that is how we can do our best.”

The Cayman Invitational, organized by Cayman Islands’ track queen Cydonie Mothersill, is in its third staging and will be held at the Truman Bodden Stadium.
