Landover, VA (Mar. 17, 2016) – Ashburn Elite Athletes brought home 25 medals from the AAU Indoor Track National Championship on March 12-13.  Approximately 1500 of the top athletes from across the United States and Canada participated in the meet, making it the largest Indoor National Championship in AAU History.

“Last year, we updated our strength, conditioning and training program to allow our kids to better perform and compete on the National level, said Ashburn Elite head Coach Derrick Greene.   The kids have embraced the new program and we saw the results this weekend.  Amongst strong competition from both the United States and Canada, Ashburn Elite athletes medaled in many events, including short and long distance running events, long jump, hurdles, shot put, and all of our relay teams medaled.  Even our second sport training and speed development kids showed marked improvement and competed, probably to their surprise. I am very pleased with the efforts and am extremely proud of all our kids.”
