Sianni Wynn hasn’t quite turned 11-years-old yet and she is already breaking records in one of the most competitive sports out there—Track and Field.
Recently, the young rising track star made her mark at the National Junior Olympic Track and Field Championships in North Carolina, sweeping all three races in which she competed. Additionally, to add to her impressive feats, she broke the national age group record of 59.8 seconds set by Olympian athlete Monique Henderson when she ran the 400-meter dash is 58.7 seconds.
“I was kind of nervous,” Sianni said in an interview about the race, “because I was like ‘go, go, go’. I thought they were close to me, but they weren’t.”
When asked to comment on his athlete, coach Albert Essilfie stated that, “that’s what really separates her from a lot of people. When it’s time to work, she locks in. We never have to tell her to do a rep over or to work harder.” And that of course, is the true sign of a champion.
We cannot wait to see more of this incredible athlete. We definitely have a feeling that we will see her name in lights very soon!
