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!

We also asked Michelle's wife, Joil London-Ahye @mrskinglee10.6 for her take and she said...

What I admire most abbout Michelle-lee...her courage, strength, motivation and heart. I've seen several situations try to knock her down, but I've seen her get up 10x stronger than she was before. Her empathy for others, giving back, dedicating her free time to the youth are very inspiring for everyone around her and encourages them to do the same. Although no one has it all together, Michelle-lee is the one to put it all together. I tell her all the time, she's made me into a better person just by being who she is!

I admire how she does all the right things for her career, no shortcuts, and no half-stepping. Although it may be challenging, she always manages to regroup and try harder the next time. Realistically speaking, I admire that she is one of the Great one's left!


And by the way...what does Michelle-lee like about iON?
