Leave VCB alone

Whenever an athlete - especially a good athlete - is injured, and cannot compete in an event, I feel it for him or her.

Many persons are calling for Veronica Campbell Brown's head; they want her to hang up her spikes and leave the athletic arena.

Campbell Brown is one of our best female athletes. She has been very successful in her track and field career. She, like others, has made us as Jamaicans very proud.

She is still a young woman. We should always be happy to see her face in the line-up, even if she is going to come last in a race - instead of wanting to see the back of her.

If she is feeling on top of the world and thinks that she and can still take on the world and continue running, then, we should wish her well and support her.
