Miller stands at 6 feet 2 inches and holds the junior national record and has now become the second 19 year old competitor to make it into the women’s 200 meter finals with a time of 22.72 seconds.
“I feel pretty good and I thank God for just allowing me to get the opportunity to run in my first world championship final,” she said yesterday.
“I know I have some things to work on, especially the first bend. But the straightway was really powerful as I was able to come back to get fourth place. I competed with the best and so for the first time doing it, I don’t feel so bad.”
Team manager Ralf McKinney said the Bahamas should be proud of what Miller accomplished.
“Fourth place isn’t bad. She’s one of the youngest females ever to make it to a final at the World Championships, so that’s another plus,” he said. “We are just so proud of her.”
Miller is excited for the next games and will continue her training in the 400 and 200 meter runs.
