Bahamian veteran Chris ‘Fireman’ Brown has had a very successful career. He has the distinction, however, of competing in an era when the Caribbean and its wider environs are reaping unparalleled success in the sport. Brown’s career might pale in comparison to his counterparts but his career needs special commendation.

Brown came into his own in 2007 having won gold medals in the 400m and 4x400m relay at the Pan American Games. He just missed a medal, finishing fourth in the 400m at the Osaka, Japan Worlds that same year. He went on to win a silver medal in the 4x400m in the same Games. Brown also won a gold, silver and bronze medal in the mile relay at the 2001, 2005 and 2003 World Championships, respectively and the London 2012 Olympics, where he ran lead-off. In addition, he won a gold medal in 2010 at the World Indoors and bronze in 2006 and 2008.
