Special congratulations to Antanyiah Brown from Metro-Dade TC who broke her own record in the 55 Meter Dash that she had set in the prelims on Saturday, July 5th at 9.30. On Sunday, she ran a 9.20 in the finals.

Another shoutout to Sidi Njie of AMP Track Club who broke all three sprint records in the Boys’ 55m (8.87), 100m (15.54), 200m (30.99) in 2013. He then broke all of these again in 2014 in the Boys’ 7 year old 100m (14.64), 400m (1:06.02) and 200m (29.89). Since beginning his training with AMP Track Club at the age of four, Sidi has not lost a race in a championship to a child his own age in the 200m.

Thanks again to everyone who came out to participate, congratulations on all of your awards and honors, and we can’t wait to see you in 2015!
