NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Prime Minister Philip Davis sending congratulations to Shaunae Miller-Uibo on winning the gold medal in the open 400 meters at the World Athletic Championships in Eugene, Oregon, on Friday evening, 22 July 2022.

“This latest world championship is unique and significant not only for Mrs. Miller-Uibo but for The Bahamas because she made history tonight. Shaunae Miller-Uibo is now the only female sprinter to become World Youth Champion, World Junior Champion, Olympic Champion, World Indoor Champion, and now World Champion at 400 meters. Mrs. Miller-Uibo is the most accomplished female ‘quarter miler’ in athletic history,” PM Davis says.

He adds, “Inspiration Shaunae has become over a relatively short period, not only to a generation of Bahamian youth and athletes but to all Bahamians both at home and abroad cannot be overstated.”

“I am personally inspired, and my government’s resolve strengthened to ensure that sports tourism as an integral component of the orange economy becomes a significant pillar of the national economy.”

Sports Minister Mario Bowleg also congratulating two-time Olympic gold medalist Miller-Uibo noting the world championship was the one title missing from her resume.

“I am honoured to have witnessed such a historical feat in person and congratulated Miller-Uibo on her major accomplishment. She is indeed a stellar athlete and a great ambassador for our country,” Bowleg says.
