Personal Best

National 2017 400m champion Ronda Whyte was born on November 6, 1990 in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica. Ronda is no Champs superstar as she never competed at Boys and Girls Championships. After enrolling at G.C Foster College, she began to take the sport seriously. Ronda’s main event was the 400m and she improved her performances every year under the watchful eyes of Maurice Wilson.
 
In her first competitive 400m she ran 56.00 seconds. That’s when everyone knew that Ronda was a special and talented athlete. In 2013 she switched her event to the 400mH and ran 58.4 over the barriers at the Intercollegiate Track and Field Championships (Intercol Champs) where she earned a silver medal. She also copped a silver medal in the flat 400m at Intercol Champs. In 2014, Ronda didn’t do as well as expected but she returned in 2015 with a bang. In 2015 she rounded down her 400m and 400mH times to 53.03 and sub 57 respectively. In 2016, Ronda once again ran a lifetime best of 55 seconds over the 400mH. Unfortunately, Ronda experienced disappointment at the National Senior Trials in 2016 when she fell going over hurdle two and failed to advance out of the first round.
 
Ronda produced a major upset at the 2017 National Trials by clocking a personal best of 54.24 seconds in a stacked field to defeat Olympic and World Championship competitors and thus booking a spot on the Jamaica team to the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London.

Ronda exited the World Championships at the semi-final stage of the 400m.
