FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A Razorback track player is the Jamaican National Champion in the 5,000 meter run.

The University of Arkansas announced Saturday that senior Kemoy Campbell dominated the country’s best by more than a full minute to win the gold. He posted a time of 13:51.34 to win the event at Independence Park in Kingston, Jamaica.

He is qualified to represent the national team this August at the 2015 World Championships in Beijing, China.

Campbell is the 2015 SEC indoor and outdoor champion at 5,000 meters. He received All-America honors for his efforts at the NCAA championships and is the Razorbacks’ first qualifier for the 2015 World Championships.
