Have you ever had an occassion where you meet someone larger than life who you admire tremendously, but after the meeting you are even more inspired by their grace, sincerity and genuine spirit? This describes my appreciation of a young lady who is one of the greatest sprinters of our time...Michelle Lee-Ahye.

Always believe in yourself.. trust the process have faith and don’t ever let anyone bring you down or say you can’t....
Update: Michelle-Lee accomplished her goal and made the 2018 World Championships Final in Birmingham, UK! Watch the race below!
We also asked Michelle what she thought about her performance:
My world indoor championship 60m didn't go as I planned, but at the end of it all, I was happy with my results. 6th fastest woman in the world over 60m and ran a season best 7.13. I finished my indoor season healthy and injury free, ready for outdoor.
I have the commonwealth games coming up next. This will be my second time taking part in this games. My first one didn't go too well because I was injured really bad, but still ran, made the semis, but couldn't run the final. Going into my second Commonwealth games, my goal is to do better and hope to get a medal!
Another Update: Michelle-Lee's determination and faith paid off again as she not only did "better" but became the 2018 Commonwealth Games Champ!
