Over the last few summers TV24 Sports has caught up with local AAU track team Fast Feet for the Elite Athlete. The team is once again coming off another successful summer. This afternoon TV24 Sports met up with Coach Sam Green and two of the four athletes that qualified for this year’s Junior Olympic Games. Last week, Anthony Bothwell and Jonathan Baxter along with CJ Gresham and Alasha Dudley participated in the nation’s premier track and field event in Houston, Texas.
This season Fast Feet competed in the USA Track and Field Division which is tops in the country. When the team returned from the Junior Olympics, they came back with another medal. Eight-year old Anthony Bothwell finished eighth in the country in the 200 meter dash giving Calhoun County its first Junior Olympic medalist in the 8 and under ranks.
The team is headed up by Coach Sam Green. Along with on-track training, Green also serves as bridge to help athletes get scholarships for college. Fast Feet has 20 members already and Green trains kids of all ages and abilities.
