Barbadian sprinter’s performance in the semi-finals of the Tokyo Olympics 2020
Our Barbadian athletes have been performing in the Tokyo Olympics and making us proud on the track and in the pool. However, even though we had many advances, no one was able to secure a spot in any final. This morning was the closet we came. Watch the race to see how close! Barbadian sprinter Sada Williams literally ran her personal best of 50.11 in the 3rd semi-final of the 400 metres. Needing to come in the top two in her race, or run a qaulifying time, Sada missed out by just a tenth of a second. Believe that?!
Sada Williams previous personal best time was 51.31. She beat her personal best by more than a second! And setting a national record along the way also.
As you can see there just a mere 0.14 of a second off from making the finals! So proud of Sada Williams and all of the athletes, really making us proud to bleed blue yellow and black.
