Vessey ran her second-fastest race of all-time at the 2011 USA Outdoor Championships where she finished 2nd in 1:58.86 to earn a spot on her second trip to the world championships. Vessey had the performance of her life in winning the women's 800m convincingly in a then-world leading time of 1:57.84 seconds at the Herculis Super Grand Prix meet in Monaco. Her performance was a personal best by more than two seconds, and it placed her on the Team USA roster for the 2009 World Outdoor Championships in Berlin by easily bettering the 'A' qualifying standard of 2:00.00. Vessey's time is the fastest by an American since Jearl Miles-Clark topped the U.S. list in 2004 with her clocking of 1:57.27. Vessey’s performance ties her for seventh place with Joetta Clark on the all-time U.S. list...Vessey provided a preview of what was to come with her stunning victory June 7 at the Nike Prefontaine Classic, which she entered as a last minute “lane filler.” Vessey won the race in a then personal best 2:00.18, and defeated reigning Olympic champion Pamela Jelimo in the process.
