Aztecs headed to Olympics
Two Aztecs will represent their countries and compete in the 2012 Olympics in London.
Keshia Baker, a San Diego State graduate student currently earning a master’s degree in the joint public health and social work program, has been chosen to compete as part of the United States’ 4×400-meter relay team.
A six-time All-American who graduated from the University of Oregon in 2010, Baker finished sixth in the women’s 400 meter at last month’s U.S. Olympic Team Trials.
“With track, it starts over every year,” Baker said. “Just because you are in the lead one year, doesn’t mean you’ll maintain that lead. The next year a new person can come up.
