Oops, she did it again... No, not Britney Spears, Team USA Olympic Gold Medalist, 6-time IAAF World Indoor & Outdoor Track and Field Champion, Brittney Reese.
Taking home her 6th Gold Medal at the 2016 IAAF Indoor Championships last week. This will be Reese's 3rd Indoor Gold, adding to her 3 Outdoor Gold Medal collection. She brought home not only another Gold for Team USA, but a record setting 6 World Gold Medals! No long jumper, male or female, has ever accomplished this, so naturally we're pumped that she's repping red, white, and blue and #TeamJLab.
Reese is the Indoor American record holder in the long jump with a soaring distance of 7.23 meters, in which she almost jumped again last Friday, but was barely short 0.01 meters. This was Reese's first big win, bringing her back in the spotlight, after a tough two year recovery from hip surgery. With a lot of work on and off the track, both mentally and physically, Reese regained her confidence and gave everything she had to add another Gold to her collection.
She's on the road to Rio, hoping to win her second Olympic Gold Medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro.
