Veronica Campbell-Brown has not yet retired from track and field. The 37-year-old, who in February, gave birth to her daughter Avianna Brown, will make that decision at the end of the year.

Campbell, who won eight Olympic Games gold medals, including two 200m titles, was speaking to reporters in Barbados during the signing of her book Inside Out: Activate The Power Within You.

“Right now, you can see I am not competing professionally, but I have not thrown in the towel,” she was quoted as saying.

“At the end of the year I will think about that and make a decision about whether or not I want to go to train for the Olympics in 2020,” added Campbell-Brown, who won 11 World Championships medals, including three gold and seven silver.

Campbell-Brown is in Barbados taking part in the inaugural Caribbean High-Performance Summit and while here she decided to promote her book.
