Vicki Barr is this week’s Track Beauty!
The Briton is an experienced competitor. In 2007, she lowered her 400m dash personal best from 52.85s to 52.44s, earning a slot to the Osaka World Championships. Since being selected for the U.K. Olympic Team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Barr has barged into the podium of several major international competitions.

At the 2009 European Indoor Championships, the British 4x400m relay quartet, of which Barr was part, won silver behind the powerhouse Russian team.
The British women finished fourth at the World Championships in Berlin the same year, a respectable performance considering the high caliber competition. Competing for England at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games, Barr reached the semi-finals of the 400m dash and won silver in the 4x400m relay.
The British sprinter has personal bests of 23.87s (2007) and 52.40s (2010) in the 200m and 400m dashes, respectively.
