Erin Jackson Is Going To The Olympics!
But the former University of Florida engineering student and inline skater from Ocala, FL picked a great time to set new personal best times, and did so when the pressure was highest.
The best she can is going to take her to Pyeongchang, South Korea and the Winter Olympics.
She went 39.22 in her first heat during the Trials Friday night, and even faster in her second heat at 39.04 to become the first Black female athlete ever to qualify for a US Olympic long track speed skating team.
February 8 and the start of the upcoming Winter Games is getting more interesting by the day with all this Black Girl Magic happening.
