Jamaica’s sprint queen, Mrs. Veronica Campbell-Brown, a 2-time Olympic gold medalist at 200m and World Champion at 100m ran an explosive 10.92 seconds to win the women’s 100 meters dash.

This year’s Reebok Grand Prix, which takes place on Saturday, May 30, 2009 (starting 3pm) at Icahn Stadium will yet again feature a galaxy of Jamaican international track stars as well as other world beaters. For the third consecutive year, top high school teams from Jamaica along with New York area teams will compete for bragging rights. The Reebok Grand Prix will be broadcast live on ESPN2 and taped delayed in CBS. www.reebokgrandprix.com
