Though many of the eyes at the VA Showcase will be on the competition the first two days, there are also some very elite athletes competing on Sunday as well. One athlete highlighting this AAU competition is 9 year old Alaiyah Choice from Chester.
Last year as an 8 year old she ranked as one of the fastest girls in the entire world for her age group. He personal bests included a 12-1 in the long jump, a 29.90 in the 200m dash, and a blazing fast 1:07 in the 400m dash.
Next weekend she will toe the line in the 200, 400, and long jump competition. The records she is chasing are 26.38 in the 200, 60.43 in the 400, and 15-4.25 in the long jump.
Choice is just one of many athletes though competing on Sunday in what is becoming one of the biggest and best AAU Invitationals in the nation indoors. It currently features athletes from VA, MD, DC, NC, TN, WV, PA, DE, FL, GA, MS, KY, NJ, NY, and OH. That's 15 different states and registration is still open!
