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....
