The Experienced Carmeisha Cox

Team Bahamas has a good mix of experience and newcomers at World Championships this year in London. One newcomer who is no stranger to the big stage is 22-year old Carmeisha Cox, who was part of a gold medal winning Bahamian team at the 2011 Pan American Junior Athletics Championships.

Cox, who attends Purdue University with Devynne Charlton and competes in the 100m hurdles for Team Bahamas, is part of the 4 x 100 relay team in London. She recently discussed her impressions arriving to London, the bond with her teammates, goals and what plans to take away from this experience.

Beginning August of last year, her goal was running her entire collegiate season. Her goal coming into 2017 was representing The Bahamas at the World Championships. Now that she is part of the team, she has been working together and forming a stronger bond with teammates in hopes that it will correlate to better performance in the relay.

Another benefit for Cox and the relay team in general is her vast experience at the Junior and collegiate levels. In fact, the team is close in age havingbounded together at junior level and during the collegiate season. That bond should carry over into their execution on the track.

On her experience so far once arriving in London, Cox has enjoyed the experience in particular, noting the beautiful, huge Olympic Stadium which held track events at the 2012 Olympic games. She is not intimidated getting on the track but more eager to show everyone what team Bahamas can do.

While the ultimate goal is always to land on the podium, Cox will take away great things from the World Championship regardless of the outcome. She is proud to represent The Bahamas and will be happy so long as her and her teammates give their best effort.

Cox knows that this experience will give her more confidence, experience and direction moving forward in her track career.
