Zaya Akins age 10 is from the Sprinters Elite Track Club in Raytown, MO and has been running track since she was five years old.

So far this year she has run a 12.72 in the 100 meter dash, 26.63 in the 200 meters, and a 1:01 400. Wow!

Her goal is to come home with a gold medal....or three from the AAU Junior Olympic Games this summer in Houston.

Besides running really fast Zaya is getting all A's in the classroom and is taking advanced math.


Good Luck Zaya!
