Kelly-Ann Baptiste - A Profile

What started off as an effort to be good at something – anything – has turned into a passionate pursuit of excellence. Sprinter Kelly-Ann Baptiste wants to be remembered as an all-time great.

“I played netball. It just wasn’t for me. I couldn’t handle jumping around on a court for an hour plus. And then tennis, I always had problems with my swings and the coach always cursed me out, so I quit that.”

Encouraged by a friend to try track and field, Baptiste joined Zenith athletics club. It was the start of a journey that has already taken her to two World Championships in Athletics meets and the last two editions of the Olympic Games. But Baptiste is not satisfied with mere participation.
