Ms Baird, a Guyanese who lives in the U.S, ran a 51.04 in the 400 meter which is the fifth fastest time for ever for a US high school athlete at the IAAFF Junior Championships in Barcelona two Fridays ago. Baird won the silver medal. Due to a technicality, she will not be representing Guyana in London at the Olympics. For some reason, the NY Daily News seems to be heavily invested in Baird and gives off a ‘there’s-a-conspiracy-afoot’ vibe.
In any case, well done Kadecia Baird!
