NEW YORK - Carmelita Jeter still has a ways to go for a perfect start but it's been good enough so far during the 2008 indoor season.

Jeter edged Miki Barber in the women's 60 meters, 7.29 to 7.30, with a late surge in the Millrose Games at Madison Square Garden on Friday to post her second win on the USA Track & Field Championships indoor series.

The former Division II All-American from Cal State Dominguez Hills also won the 55 meters by a hundredth of a second in the Run for the Dream meet in Fresno on Jan. 22 after a sluggish start.

"In all my races, I am usually a runner who comes at the end so for me to run the 60 meters is really short," Jeter said. "I only get going after the opening 40. I haven't had a perfect race, there is always something in my race that I could have done."

Jeter is still second-guessing her effort in the 100-meter final in the World Championships in Osaka where she finished in third, 0.01 away from a gold medal. Jeter, who wasn't ranked among the top 50 in the U.S. in 2006, rebounded to win the 100 in the IAAF World Athletics Final.
