Campbell to skip Delhi?

KINGSTON, March 27- Newly crowned world indoor 60m champion Veronica Campbell Brown is the latest marquee athlete reportedly hesitating over the Commonwealth Games in India in October.In a report carried in the Jamaica Observer on Friday, the sprinter’s agent Claude Bryan said she was leaning against competing, although the decision wasn’t final.

"Well currently, I don’t think it will be a go," Bryan was quoted as saying. "We haven’t sat down and made a final decision, but given the time of the year that it is, I just can’t see it happening with the World Championships coming up next year."

Campbell Brown, a two-time Olympic 200m champion who was also 100m world champion in 2007, won the silver medal in the 200m and gold in the 4x100m relay at the 2006 Commonwealth Games held in Melbourne.

Campbell Brown ran a personal best 7.00sec to win the world indoor title in Doha earlier this month.

A number of Jamaican athletes, including triple world record-holder Usain Bolt and former men’s 100m world record-holder Asafa Powell, have indicated they may not make the trip to India in October.
