ABOUT Alexandria Anderson

Alexandria is a new and exciting talent to the Stellar stable. We are delighted to welcome her to the team and will be working closely with her to ensure she fulfils her huge potential and builds on the wonderful success she enjoyed in 2011. Picking up Champion titles in both the US National Indoors and the World Championships certainly sets up a very exciting 2012!

Alexandria is a very rounded person too with a tremendous focus on her athletics career in the immediate terms but she also has interests and plans away from the track when her competitive career is over.

Hobbies: I love movies. I am such a movie buff. I also love to dance. Recently I have been getting into decorating whether it’s interior or crafting, watching as much HGTV as possible (lol). I also enjoy doing volunteer work with younger children and speaking to them about track, sports and living a healthy life.

Interesting Facts:I am one of four siblings. I am the second oldest and the oldest girl. Ever since I was in high school I have had a passion for fashion. I would sketch clothing, read multiple magazines and those are still things I do to this day. I would love to get involved in the Fashion Industry, whether it is through designing, modelling or a little bit of both. Originally I wanted to be a plastic surgeon when I grew up but I decided to change my career path during college. I have been running track since I was 6 years old, starting in the Chicago Park District at Jesse Owens Park on the south side of Chicago.

Greatest Achievements: I am the state of Illinois record holder in the 100, 200, 400 and long jump breaking the great Jackie Joyner Kerse’s high school long jump record. I am a 2009 NCAA 100m Champion. 2011 US Indoor 60m Champion and 4x100m World Champion in 2011.

Long Term Goal: To be a multiple Olympian gold medallist. To own my own Advertising/ PR firm once I am done running.
