Naomi's sprint ambition

NAOMI Campbell wishes she were an Olympic sprinter.

The 41-year-old supermodel has been enjoying the short-distance track events at the London games and particularly admires the runners' "elegance".

And Naomi even thinks she could do well in a race.

She told Britain's Vogue magazine: "If I were an athlete I would be a sprinter. It looks so elegant - and I can definitely hold my own."

However, despite her sporting ambition, Naomi recently said she has no desire to give up her catwalk career to do something else because she loves the way she can constantly "reinvent" herself as a model.

She said: "I still love what I do. It's a new challenge to see how people can change your look. I like words like transformation, reinvention, and chameleon. Because one word I don't like is predictable."

However, the British beauty is still bemused to be called a supermodel.

She said: "I would never call myself that. I don't have any superhuman powers."
