Bromfield hunts 400m gold
Despite being the overwhelming favourite for the Class One 400m final, St Elizabeth's Technical's (STETHS) Junelle Bromfield is taking none of her competitors for granted and is determined to come away with the gold medal.
Bromfield who won the 1500 metres last night in a very close finish with Asshanni Robb of Edwin Allen High, had earlier cruised to victory in her Class One 400 metres semi-final in an impressive 52.92.
She told STAR Sports she was feeling very positive about her chances today.
"I am feeling very positive, I am just preparing for the final. I am very pleased (with the semi-final race) because I came out and executed the way my coach wanted me to. He told not to do much on the backstretch and to power home once I got to the front," she explained.
At the recent Gibson-McCook relays Bromfield received the baton ahead of Holmwood's Ashley Wiilliams, who wan a brilliant anchor leg to upstage her but the STETHS star insists that Williams is not her only threat.
"I am not really focusing on Ashley, I am focusing on all seven athletes in the race because anyone can come out and do a personal best on the day. But I am very determined and very confident that if I go out and do my best I will win," she said.
