Akinosun, an Olympic Gold Medalist and World Champion sprinter currently represents Team USA and adidas, professionally, yet she still finds time to prioritize giving back to her hometown and to the grassroots levels of the sport. 

"My desire was to create opportunities for middle and high school students to compete at first class venues against elite competition and without having to travel out of the Midwest. This is something I did not have access to when I competed in middle and high school."

-- Morolake Akinosun
