Gold Medalist: Tunica’s Jalen Miller leads USA team to world title
Ole Miss freshman Jalen Miller of Tunica made his final race of the season count.
Running leadoff for Team USA’s 4x100-meter relay team, the 19 year old helped the Americans win a gold medal with a time of 38.70 at the IAAF World Junior Championships last Saturday, July 26, at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.
The Americans’ winning time was just .04 seconds off the world junior record (set by Team USA in 2004) and the third-fastest in history.
“Mission accomplished bringing the gold medal back home,” Miller said after the win. “Just wanna thank God for this opportunity and keeping me humble, running fast, and making people proud.”
