Every now and then, we have a guest that needs to interrupt their vacation for another obligation. Up until this summer, though, we’ve never had anyone leave to compete in the Junior Olympics!
Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne M. from Decator, TX had to sneak off for a few days to compete in the 400M Hurdles at the 2018 AAU Junior Olympic Games in Des Moines, IA on July 30th. While she didn’t advance to the finals, she ran very well in her heat and we couldn’t be more proud of her dedication and effort!
The AAU Junior Olympic Games have represented the pinnacle of American youth athletics since its inception in 1949. As the world’s largest multi-sport event, it currently welcomes 30,000+ spectators each year to watch more than 15,000 athletes competing in 18 different sports.
Andy was tickled pink to receive a souvenir shirt, although a bit hesitant to join her on her practice runs (we can’t blame him – she’s amazing).
Please join us in warmly applauding Cheyenne on her accomplishments!
