At the USA Indoor Champs, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, held at the end of February, I had the chance to spend some time with Brittney Reese. The world indoor and world outdoor champion in the Long Jump, Brittany is the best women long jumper, not only in the U.S., but, in the world. A former basketball player, Brittney Reese took up the long jump when she was a junior in high school. Brittney, who is pretty modest, is a tough competitor. She loves to be pushed and while she admits to needing a bit of work on her run up, Reese has the tools to get into rarefied territory in the long jump.
It will be fun to see how Brittney does this weekend at the Ole Miss Invitational, to be held in Oxford, Mississippi this weekend! Good luck Brittney!
My bet? Watch Brittney Reese add another medal to her already impressive collection in the long jump!
REESE FIRST OUTDOOR LONG JUMP
Ole Miss will host the first of two spring track meets this Saturday in Oxford. The Ole Miss
Invitational is an all day event at the Ole Miss Track Complex. Main star will
be long jump world champion Brittney Reese who will debut in her special event
into the season. Last year she started the outdoor season at the same meet with
impressive 693 cm.
Current world leader is 661
