Quote Of The Day
“The BAAA is the only governing body of track and field in The Bahamas. The trials is the national trials out of which the team would have been selected for the Olympics, and that is the final decision-maker in who runs what event. The integrity of the trials has to stand. The only thing that could have changed the line-up in Rio is if the athletes themselves gave up their spots. In Rio, we stood as one. As a federation, we have to look out for all of our athletes, and not just one athlete.”
– Bahamas track federation (BAAA) president Rosamunde Carey defending the decision to not let Olympic 400m champion Shaunae Miller run the 400/200 double in Rio as she didn’t compete in the 200 at their national trials. We 100% respect and applaud having a fair and unbiased “top 3 past the post” trials system, and not caving to the wishes of a superstar. However, the Bahamas should consider making a double at their trials more feasible as the 200 and 400 finals were on the same day.
