Antigua’s Daniel Bailey Back on Track This Season
- Updated: 02/14/2014
With his injuries behind him, Antiguan sprinter Daniel Bailey clocked 10.15secs over 100m at the Camperdown Classic in Kingston on Saturday, February 8.
The last time Bailey was seen in competition, he was eliminated in the early rounds of qualifying at the 2013 World Championships in Moscow, when he was able to muster only a pedestrian 10.45secs to finish 40th overall.
Bailey shot to fame in his country for his success on the track, finishing fourth (9.93) at the 2009 World Athletic Championships in Berlin, in the fastest race of all time behind Usain Bolt, Tyson Gay and Asafa Powell, in that order. Following his achievement, the government of Antigua and Barbuda awarded him with half-an-acre of land and appointed him sporting ambassador, which carries the title of ‘Your Excellency.’
Since then, injuries have limited competition for him. However, he managed to cop silver at the 2011 CAC Games in Mexico and a fifth place finish at the Daegu Worlds that same year.
, who trains alongside Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake in Jamaica, said he was training for the World Indoor Championships in Sopot, Poland, March 7 to 9. Before then, he will race in Texas, USA and France.
