ATLANTA, Georgia (CMC):

Jamaica's two-time Olympic sprint champion, Veronica Campbell-Brown, is targeting an indoor season in 2010.

From her new training base in Atlanta, the 27-year-old Campbell-Brown is battling chilly temperatures in Georgia "with a view of competing indoors".

Campbell-Brown, her training partner, Dexter Lee and former 100-metre world record holder Asafa Powell, visited Singapore on a promotional trip last month for the inaugural Youth Olympic Games later this year.

"Singapore will this year host the first Youth Olympic Games so the three of us were there to promote this," Campbell-Brown said in her latest contribution to IAAF Online Diaries.

"In exchange, the Jamaican Government will obtain grants to conduct repairs on both the National Stadium track and the warm-up track," she added.

Campbell-Brown, who won back-to-back Olympic 200-metre titles in 2004 and 2008, is reported to be aiming at the 2010 IAAF World Indoor Championship in Qatar in March.

"My competitive sche-dule is still being worked on. However, I am looking forward to the 2010 season," Campbell-Brown said.
