At just 10-years-old Cha’iel Johnson, daughter of star athlete Chad Johnson, is making a name for herself in track and field. The tween recently won a gold medal at the AAU National Championships for completing the 800-meter race in just over two minutes and thirty seconds.
The meet presented little competition for Cha’iel who finished her race six seconds ahead of the second place winner. Such performance definitely made her father beam.
“Good day for @babychaiel_85 today, she ran a 1:04 in the 400 meters, 2:28 in the 800 meters & 27.33 in the 200 meters,” shared Chad on Instagram. The star athlete also uploaded a picture of him and his daughter showing off her medals. Cha’iel also competed in the 200-meter race in which she ran the course in just under thirty seconds. “29 seconds ain’t bad for 10 years old,” said Chad. We agree.
Johnson is the proud father of five kids. Cha’iel is one of four daughters that he has, and the former NFL star has a son who is named after him. Watch Cha’iel compete in the AAU National Championships below.
