Chambers Advances in Jamaican Trials
June 29, 2012
Oklahoma Baptist senior Verone Chambers advanced to the semifinals of the Jamaican Olympic Trials' 400 meters Thursday, while two other former Lady Bison also competed.
Chambers finished fifth in her heat and owns the 16th and final slot to advance to the semifinals. She ran a 53.54. She will likely need to trim that to the low 53s or better to reach the finals. The semifinals are set for Saturday evening.
