Who is Ronnie Baker's wife Mikaela Harrison? Sprinter celebrated 1st anniversary in March
American professional track and field athlete Ronnie Baker is in contention to be the fastest man in the world at the Tokyo Olympics. Usain Bolt — largely considered the greatest sprinter of all time and a world record holder in the 100 meters, 200 meters, and 4 × 100 meters relay — not competing in the Games following an early retirement has left this crown up for grabs.
Competing in the 100 meters final alongside Baker at The Games are China’s Su Bingtian, Lamont Marcell Jacobs of Italy, South Africa’s Akani Simbine, Fred Kerley, also from the US, Great Britain’s Zharnel Hughes, Canada’s Andre De Grasse, and Nigeria’s Enoch Olaoluwa Adegoke.
Baker ran a personal-best 9.83 in the third semifinal. Kerley qualified with a 9.96 to win the first semifinal. De Grasse and Simbine both qualified for the final with semifinal times of 9.98 and 9.90, respectively.

The American sprinter reportedly married Mikaela Harrison Baker on March 7, 2020, in Fort Worth, Texas. While not much is known about their relationship, the two often post photos with each other on their respective Instagram pages.
As per her LinkedIn profile, Mikaela is a personal trainer certified with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. A graduate of Texas Christian University, Mikaela presently works at The Performance Lab in Fort Worth, a fitness-and-recreational-sports center.
On June 1, Baker shared a photo of the two of them on Instagram, writing, “When I win we both win! God has blessed me with a wonderful wife that supports me in everything I do. Couldn’t have asked for a better woman to be placed in my life. Gods revealed so much that I have begun to work on and improve because of this woman. I pray that he continues to grow me this season as an athlete, leader, and husband!”
On their first wedding anniversary, Baker wrote on Instagram, “365 days ago I married this sweet girl. Gosh, we have grown in our love for one another and our patience. I could write a novel here but I’ll tell you how much I love you in person. Love you.”
Earlier in December 2020, Baker wrote about his wife on Instagram, “Feeling eternally grateful for you this morning. @mikaelabbaker. I think back over the last year and the tough times you’ve had to endure. It showed me how strong you are, while also exposing some areas of weakness in my life. Over the year I’ve learned that exposure isn’t always bad, it’s a way to find areas you can grow... if you’re willing to humble yourself. From your strength you’ve helped me to start a process of being a better husband, son, brother, business partner, leader, and friend!”
On Instagram, Mikaela shared their wedding photo and wrote, “Every morning is a blessing when I get to wake up next to you. you’re my rock, my freedom fighter, my best friend, and I’m just so thankful for you babe. Thank you for winning in every arena of life for us.”
