Prime Minister Hubert Minnis congratulated Steven Gardiner on his win in the 400-meter finals at the Olympic Games.

Gardiner pulled away from the pack at the games in Tokyo, Japan on Thursday, bringing a gold metal across the finish line.

Gardiner is the first Bahamian to medal at the events.

“…Steven has demonstrated that he is without question the best in the world at the 400m.

“His accomplishments are too, making him at a young age, already one of the great athletes in our country’s history.

“The Bahamas is proud of Steven Gardiner. He gave Bahamians across our island chain a moment of joy today during this difficult time due to the pandemic.”

“On behalf of the Government of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas I congratulate Steven, his family and coaches for this historic win. I look forward to visiting with him when he returns to The Bahamas,” Minnis said.

Anthony Zambrano of Columbia placed second in the race while Grenada’s Kirani James picked up third place.
