We are is extremely happy to welcome US sprinter Teahna Daniels to our team and are privileged to have been working with her from placing 4th at the NCAA’s to winning the US National Title in the women’s 100m this week.
After placing fourth at the NCAA Championships in Austin last month, the Florida native was not a favourite for a podium position in Des Moines this weekend against a stacked field. But after an average start, Teahna showcased her strength over the final 20 meters and pulled away from the field despite a -1.7 headwind to win in 11.20, joining a list of U.S. champions that includes names like Wilma Rudolph, Wyomia Tyus, Gail Devers and Allyson Felix.
By placing top three at the event, Teahna qualified to represent Team USA at the IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar, which are held from September 27 through October 6 later this year.
The Youth & Community Studies undergraduate holds a personal best of 10.99 (100m) and 22.51 (200m) and is the American Junior Record Holder 60m (7.11). She is coached by Edrick Floréal.
