Local Sprinter Qualifies for Junior Olympic Championships

There’s no slowing down, or stopping, Charles Nnantah.

The standout sprinter from Bradshaw Mountain High School has been shining brightly all season long, smashing personal records and sailing past his competition. Earlier this month, he qualified for the USA Track & Field (USATF) Junior Olympic National Championships with a PR time of 51.47 seconds in the 400-meter run. At the USATF’s Region 10 Junior Olympic Championships in Aurora, Colorado, Nnantah also took home a sixth-place finish in the 400m hurdles with a PR of 55.88 seconds. He was seventh in the 110m hurdles with a time of 15.95 seconds.

The incoming senior has been training hard all year long, building on his track prowess that began when he first started running in fourth grade. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors on and off the track! Stay posted on his performance on the official USATF website HERE.
