She competed in the archery competition at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, reaching the second round before being eliminated by Lisa Unruh of Germany.[2] Following the mandatory break of 12 months in international competition for athletes switching national representation, Bayardo made her debut as a Dutch archer at the third stage of the Archery World Cup in June 2018.[1]

In June 2019, partnered with Sjef van den Berg, Bayardo won silver medal in the mixed recurve event at the Archery World Championships in 's-Hertogenbosch, losing to the South Korean duo of Lee Woo-seok and Kang Chae-young in the final.[3] Later that month at the 2019 European Games held in Minsk, Belarus, Bayardo secured a qualification place for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo after reaching the semi-finals, becoming the first female Dutch archer to achieve an Olympic spot since 1996.[4] Although she lost to Tatiana Andreoli of Italy in their semi-final match, Bayardo claimed bronze medal after defeating Russia's Anna Balsukova in the third-place match.[5]
