Watch: Ayris Hutson Wins 400 At AAU Vegas

9 year-old Ayris Hutson was among Ohio's contingent who made their way over to Las Vegas last weekend for the West Coast AAU Junior Olympic Games

Hutson, who represents the Ohio Heat club in the greater-Columbus area, battled not only great competition, but also the sweltering Vegas heat on her way to a 1st place finish in the 400. 

She put a 1:10.55 clocking on the board to edge Aniyah Cook (Olympia Track Club, Fort Myers, FL), who claimed runner-up honors in 1:10.95. 

During the 3-day meet, Hutson also enjoyed success in the 800 and 200 events, where she placed second and third in times of 2:48.72 and 30.30, respectively.
