ABOUT Brianna Rollins

Brianna is an immense record-breaking athletics talent whose collegiate performances have shone bright enough from Clemson University, South Carolina to catch the eye all around the athletics world.

 

As an immediate prelude to signing her first professional contract with us and stepping onto the biggest stages, Brianna bade farewell to her sparkling collegiate athletics career with her third NCAA title with back-to-back record runs in the 100m hurdles.

 

She is not just a college athlete with great future potential – she is already lighting up the athletics world with record breaking runs, times already ranked in the world all-time top 10 and the small matter of a world No.1 ranking!

 

One of her first challenges as a professional will be to qualify for the Moscow hosted World Championships in August and her current form and standing in the world rankings mean she is in great shape to do just that.

 

The Clemson University student and native of Florida will see out all the requirements of her degree by December 2013, a year that has already brought seven records and multiple victories and accolades in only its first six months!

 

In June Brianna was named Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches’ Association ‘National Female Athlete of the Year’ and also ‘Athlete of the Week’ by US Track & Field.

 

Already the NCCA record-holder in the 60m hurdles, Brianna broke the collegiate record in the 100mh with a time of 12.47 in the semi-final at Eugene, Oregon, and then shattered her own record with a 12.39 runaway victory in the finals. It was her first national title outdoors and her third overall.

 

Brianna’s time of 12.39 ranks 9th in the all-time world list, was the fastest time in the world this year and the third fastest posted in the last nine years.
