ABOUT Brianna Rollins

The Olympic 100m hurdles champion 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 on to the biggest stages, Brianna bade farewell to her sparkling collegiate athletics career in 2013 with her third NCAA title with back-to-back record runs in the 100m hurdles of 12.47 and 12.39.

Even greater was to follow at the US Championships as her stunning victory came in 12.26. Going to equal third on the all-time list, she missed the world record by just four hundredths of a second as she became the fastest woman for 21 years.

She was duly crowned world champion that year in Moscow with a time of 12.44.

After a couple of lean years by her very high standards in which she placed fourth at the 2015 Worlds, she was back in style in 2016, which began with a world indoor silver. She won the US Trials with 12.34 – one of the 20 fastest times in history – and then in Rio finished 0.11 seconds clear of the field with 12.48 in reaching the pinnacle of every athlete’s career.
