Olympic Gold Medalist Pauline Davis-Thompson predicts that 2013 NCAA Women's Indoor 400m Champion Shaunae Miller will win the Austin Sealy MVP Award at this year's 2013 BTC CARIFTA Games. "I understand that Shaunare Miller is going to be coming home, and she's gonna be running here at the CARIFTA Games. If she continues to run the way she has been lately, I could see her becoming the next Austin Sealy trophy winner," said Davis-Thompson, who won the Austin Sealy award in 1984. "It's a good indication as to you going to the next level and doing some great things (in future competitions) like the Olympics and the World Championships." (Photo by Ken Nguyen/Bahama Live)
