Nassau, Bahamas - Statement by the Right Honourable Perry Christie, M.P. Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas On The Win By Shaunae Miller in the Women’s 400 Metres Final At The Rio Olympics In Brazil:

What a magnificent victory by our Shaunae Miller at the Rio Olympics yesterday!  It will forever stand as one of those truly iconic moments in Bahamian history.

Shaunae gave it her all and then reached down into the deepest part of her being to summon up new resources of courage, will-power, determination and strength at the exact moment when she needed them most. Shaunae then crossed the finish line in first and in so doing rode into Bahamian history, capturing the admiration of the entire world in the process.

Shaunae’s victory is so emblematic of our greatness as a people. We never give up. We push above our weight. We fight with all our might, and we go for the gold with every sinew at our command. Shaunae showed us, and all the world, the best we are and the very best we can become.

On behalf of the Government and the people of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, and on my own behalf, I congratulate Shaunae Miller on her great and glorious triumph in Rio yesterday.She has filled me and all of us with an immense pride. May God continue to bless her and all our other athletes at the Rio Olympics.

Well done, Shaunae! Well done, The Bahamas!
