12 Year Old Girl Runs 2:06 for 800

Raevyn Rogers, age 12, ran 2:06.9 at the USA Youth Outdoor National Championships held in Ypsilanti, Michigan June 30-July 5.

"Yes, I want to keep running," she said, "God gave me this talent and I am not going to waste it." Raevyn continues to get better by pushing herself in practice and being okay with having to hit faster times than her teammates. She said, "It's what makes me better." Raevyn is enjoying her first time competing at the USA Youth Championships and is ready to run hard again tomorrow.
