Women's 200m Final in Daegu 2011

VCB, Carmelita Jeter & Allyson Felix

Yes Usain Bolt ran a fantastic race in the 200m to redeem himself but most entralling race for the day for me was watching Veronica Campbell-Brown (VCB) outrun Camelita Jeter and my current favorite female sprinter Allyson Felix in the women's 200m race.

Not many people had expected VCB to win, certainly not me, as she had lost the 100m to Carmelita Jeter. In fact Jeter did try to haul VCB back in the closing stages of the race but VCB managed to hold her off with a storming finish after her brilliant start.

3-time 200m defending champion Allyson Felix rounded off the medals after placing 2nd in the 400m earlier. Felix tried to do the 200m & 400m double here and I guess that foiled her chances.
