"Yet more controversy in Patagonia: the outcome of the USA versus Jamaica clash is under investigation due to the sudden collapse of Kquewanda Bailey...."
-- Ginny Weasley reporting for the Daily Prophet, 16 May 2014 (Pm)

Kquewanda Bailey

Quidditch player, Keeper for Jamaica’s National Team (2014).

During their first fixture in the Quidditch World Cup 2014 tournament, Bailey suddenly collapsed and toppled from her broom at a crucial point in Jamaica's match against the USA, but was saved by the referee's quick thinking use of "arresto momentum". Following an inquiry, it turned out Bailey had been bitten by a Sasabonsam during the opening ceremonies, and the bite had become infected. (Pm).

Other canon notes and references

Since Viktor Krum, born 1976, was the oldest player at the tournament (Pm), Bailey must have been born after 1976.
