Shaunae Miller-Uibo has been lauded by her country for her recent record-equaling performance at the 2018 Millrose Games in New York.
Miller-Uibo scored the indoor track in 35.45s equaling the mark set 25 years ago by Russian great Irina Privalova. The performance prompted Michael Pintard, the Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture in the Bahamas, to describe as one of the best ever from the Bahamas.
“Shaunae has cemented her status as one the Bahamas’ greatest track and field athletes of all time and is currently ranked at No.1 in the world in the indoor 300m and outdoor 400m,” the elated sports minister said.
“The Government and the people of the Bahamas applaud Mrs Miller-Uibo for her unselfishness and dedication to representing The Bahamas in a superlative manner at the Millrose Games. It is my esteemed pleasure to convey congratulations on her stellar performance. She continues to make our country proud.”
The 2016 Olympic 400-metre champion is currently preparing to compete at the World Indoor Championships to be held in Birmingham, England from March 1-4.
