1973-

African-British athlete and model

Baulch was adopted at six months of age by a white family from a South Wales valley village. He was not an academic child at school but loved athletics, so his parents took him to the Newport Harriers when he was in his early teens where he began to run. He began to be successful almost immediately, and in 1996 was a member of the British Olympic 4 X 400 meter relay team which won the silver medal. His coaches are Linford Christie and Colin Jackson. Although he had very little contact with other Black people before he began to run and was the only Black child in his schools, he experienced very little racial harassment.
