BAAAs Nationals Preview: The Road to Paris

An Olympic year means the BAAAs National takes on an added layer of importance, but there’s a lot more at stake when the country’s top athletes compete next month. The organization launched its official campaign to preview the meet, hosted June 26-28 at the original Thomas A. Robinson Stadium, and dubbed “The Road to Paris.”

Steven Gardiner’s Undefeated Streak Continues

He had to hold off a late charge from the greatest supervillain name in sports, but Steven Gardiner continued his undefeated 400m streak this season. Gardiner posted a season’s best 44.39 seconds and outlasted Belgium’s Alexander Doom at the line to win the 400m at the Ostrava Golden Spike Tuesday in the Czech Republic. Doom finished second in a personal best 44.44 and Jamaica’s Sean Bailey was third in 44.93 seconds. The Golden Spike is the sixth World Athletics Continental Tour Gold event of 2024. Returning from an injury that brought an end to his season at the 2023 World Championships in Hungary, Gardiner opened this season with a 44.45 seconds at the LSU Invitational. He also ran 44.76 seconds at the Wanda Diamond League event in Doha.

Dior-Rae Scott Commits to Nebraska Cornhuskers

Dior-Rae Scott has already had a record-setting junior career and looks to continue that momentum when she heads to NCAA Division I. Scott announced her commitment to the Nebraska Cornhuskers yesterday for the fall 2025 campaign. The latest in the talented pipeline of javelin throwers out of Blue Chip Athletics, she is set to join a Nebraska program that currently features reigning NCAA National Champion Rhema Otabor. The 16-year-old Scott recently won gold and set a new CARIFTA record in the javelin with her throw of 52.53 meters. It also stands as the Bahamian junior national record and was the fourth farthest throw in the world for her age group. The St. Augustine’s College student is a multi-sport star who also represented The Bahamas in basketball at the 2022 Centrobasket Under-15 Tournament.
