While the nation's best college athletes were in Eugene, Oregon at the NCAA Outodoor Championships last weekend, the nation's best 12-year old girls 800m runner-- Sprint NOLA's Aaliyah Lane-- was at the Louisiana Governor's Games in New Orleans rewriting the meet's record book.
If her picture looks familiar, it should. She was our first MileSplit LA Future Star. She was selected due to the extraordinary indoor season she was having. Lane has showed no signs of slowing down. In fact, she is getting faster.
At the meet this weekend, she won the 200m (26.12), 400m (57.11), and her favorite event..the 800m (2:16.74). All of those times are new meet records. The old 800m record was 19-years old. Her time gives her the US#1 for 12-year old girls in the 800m.
