Prior to the London Olympics, Wesh ran her personal best in the 400-meters with a time of 51.23. She made it to the 400-meter semi-finals in the 2012 London Olympics but failed to make it to the finals, placing 19th overall, with a time of 52.49.
In 2022, Wesh made her comeback to the public attention as one of the contestants on Season 26 of The Bachelor. She is now trying to win the gold medal in the race for Clayton Echard’s heart.
According to Wesh’s ABC bio, she now lives in Florida where she runs her own real estate company and owns several properties. In addition, she is also a business technology instructor for Santa Fe College and the vice president of human resources.
For various reasons, it’s tough to estimate Wesh’s actual net worth. But as indicated by her ABC’s bio, she owns several properties and runs a real estate company. So, we can say that she is worth at least $500 thousand (the minimal figure). But her net worth is probably in millions.
Dating, Boyfriend, and Affairs
The 30-year-old former Olympian is unmarried and single. So, she decided to find love in Season 26 of the reality dating show, The Bachelor.
Spoilers Ahead: Unfortunately, Wesh isn’t the one who will win the heart of this season’s eligible bachelor Clayton Echard.
According to Reality Steve, Wesh makes it out of the Bachelor Mansion and on to Houston and Toronto, but that’s where her journey ends. She reportedly gets sent home during the rose ceremony and doesn’t move on to Croatia.
Whatever the future holds for Wesh, we’re confident she will succeed in whatever she pursues… and find a lovely man to share it with.
Family, Parents, and Siblings
Wesh was born to Haitian parents. She grew up with four siblings. She is the only one of her parents’ five children that considers themselves Haitian-American.
Athletic ability runs in Wesh’s family as her brother, Darrell, is also an Olympian, but he competed for America in the 2012 Olympics. Eventually, he also competed for Haiti in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
