Jamaican curtain collapses during NY race


Kemoy Campbell

Campbell finished 10th in a 5,000m during a 2017 World Championships in London.

Jamaican stretch curtain Kemoy Campbell has been taken to sanatorium after collapsing during a men’s 3,000m during a Millrose Games in New York.

Campbell, 28, was behaving as a pace-setter when he collapsed and fell into a infield after a second spin only over a 1,000m mark.

He was given medical courtesy by a side of a lane and afterwards carried out of a track on a stretcher.

The contestant is in a fast condition in hospital, according to reports.

However, organisers have nonetheless to yield central information on his condition.

The Jamaica Gleaner, quoting a athlete’s representative Ray Flynn, pronounced Campbell had to be regenerated by defibrillator
