If we were looking for a term to describe this week's 2021 USATF Junior Olympics, we'd have to settle on that one considering all the success ZOOM experienced!
Despite the meet challenges, weather delays, and occasional disappointment, ZOOM athletes saw great success in Jacksonville, to the tune of 27 All-American athletes, including 5 National Champions- numbers many clubs would be envious of! These team successes would be impossible without our incredible support system- our parents and sponsors- who helped paved the way for another successful season!
Below is a list of all of our NEW All-Americans and National Champs!
Despite the 3hr rain delay and the 11pm finish, Seth Brown had a day that embodies the 𝙕𝙊𝙊𝙈𝙎𝙏𝙍𝙊𝙉𝙂 mantra at its core💪
Seth started the day in the 100m, earning his way into today's Final, then sat and waited nearly 10 hours to finish his day in the Long Jump. The wait proved to be a fruitful one, as he finished 3rd overall and earned his first ever 𝘼𝙡𝙡 𝘼𝙢𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙙𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣!🇺🇸
Congrats to Seth and his family, as well as all the ZOOM competitors in action on today!

Congratulations are in store for our newest 2X All-American: Mr. Da'Vion Hepburn!
Da'Vion earned 2nd place honors in the Long Jump earlier this morning and backed up that stellar performance with a 8th Place showing in the 200m to close out his #AAUPrimaryNationals!
Da'Vion becomes our 1st All-American in the 2021 championship season, but hopefully, not our last, as the 2021 USATF JOs begin July 26 and ZOOM is sending 46 competitors to Jacksonville to compete!

The 2021 edition of the ZOOM Invitational saw over 600 athletes descend on the campus of Florida High this past weekend, and the meet was one for the record books!
Great food, exciting competition, and outstanding meet management- just a FEW of the many highlights of the meet!
Tallahassee ZOOM would like to thank our sponsors for supporting the club. Our sponsors this year include:
2020 AAU Jr Olympics Recap
The 2020 AAUJROGames was one for the record books for Tallahassee ZOOM despite the many challenges faced this season! We would like to commend all of the ZOOM athletes who competed, gave it their all and represented us, and themselves, to the best of their abilities....
We would like to congratulate our 2 National Champions from this season: Nadia Collins & Curtis Williams! Both athletes brought home the GOLD in the 17-18 Long Jump. For Curtis, this marked his 5th straight national title, and for Nadia, her 3rd straight!
We also would like to recognize one of the YOUNGEST members of Tallahassee ZOOM, Mr. Manito Quinones, who despite his age, is already developing an impressive resume. Manito earned All-American status for the 2nd year in the row in the 8U Boy's Long Jump.
We had some NEW members of ZOOMNATION get in on the fun down in Satellite Beach as well. Ms. Kyra Swart earned 2 medals and All-American status in the 80m Hurdles and 400m in the 12 Yr Old age division. Makari Vickers also exceeded expectations, earning hardware in the 100m and Long Jump, while narrowly missing out on a 3rd in the 200m in the 15-16 age group. The performer of the week, however, has to be Mr. Izayah Vickers, who earned 3 medals for the week, including the 100m, 200m, and Long Jump in the 11 Yr Old division!
We look forward to getting back to training in the coming months and preparing for a successful 2021 campaign! We want to thank all of you for your understanding, flexibility, and support this year.
Please stay safe, and look for more info on our 2021 season in the coming months....
We would like to thank WTXL and Alison Posey for spotlighting two members of Tallahassee ZOOM: Curtis Williams & Nadia Collins.
