Veronica Campbell-Brown Retires from the Sport…

What a journey it has been!

Through the grace of God, I have climbed from a small town in Trelawny, Jamaica up the ladder of success to become one of the most decorated women in the Olympic Games and World Championship history.

All glory to the Lord for my successes. He blessed me with the talent, the will to stay focused and the requisite work ethics. Additionally, He placed authentic and supportive people in my life who served as pillars of strength as I maneuvered the highs and lows which littered my athletic career.

As I climbed, I passed the rung of hurt, that of injuries and rejection, not to mention the tears, however, they never quenched my aspiration to grasp the fruits of success and satisfaction. For that I must venture to say that I am proud and grateful.

I want to thank the persons and companies who contributed to my successes; my family, especially my husband, Omar Brown, who in the latter years served as my coach; I must mention friends, fans, supporters, sponsors, coaches and my agents at On Track Management; I could not have done it without your help and support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

As I take off my spikes never to put them on again, this girl from Clarks Town walks away happy and contented with a race well run.

The journey of parenting, entrepreneurship (VCBFit), philanthropist (The VCB Foundation), and motivational speaker continues.

I look forward to what God has for me in this new chapter.

Love and light,
