The 2013 Track and Field season has already started visualizing history in the making by witnessing Tierra Crockrell (Seattle, Washington) add two more record breaking titles to her profile bringing it to a total of seven.

Barely turning 12 years of age, Tierra garnered the National Record as well as the title of National Champion at the UW Indoor meet and the 2013 AAU Indoor Nationals respectively held in Birmingham, Alabama.

Never resting on her laurels, on May 28, 2013, Tierra brought another dimension in her quest to participate in the 2016 Olympics by breaking the International Youth World Record landing 8’6″ in the Standing Long Jump.

To date Tierra has obtained 25 National Awards and is now focusing on “hurdle” competitions.

Her trainers Eric Metcalf (retired NFL Track and Field Champion) and Maurice Green (Gold Medalist Track and Field) aren’t surprised at these accomplishments but realize that Tierra Crockrell is the one to watch as the 2016 Olympics draws near.

    Love the article but it should have said 2020 or 2024 Olympics. 15 year olds don’t make the American Olympic team.
