Baird claims 400m Silver in Central American and Caribbean Junior record time
Guyana experienced the taste of glory last evening when overseas-based 400 meters sprinter, Kadecia Baird executed a stunning 400 meters race at the IAAF World Junior Championships in Barcelona Spain at the Montjuic Olympic Stadium.
Medgar Evers’ Baird earned herself a silver medal in fashion when she registered a blistering 51.04 seconds, taking more than a second from her personal best time of 52.14 seconds.
Winning the race was crowd favourite Ashley Spencer of the United States of America in 50.50 seconds; Erika Rucker was third with 51.10 seconds.
Baird must be delighted and thrilled with her performance which is now a new PB and also a new Central American and Caribbean Junior Record.
