Race Video from today, Rose is out in lane 8.
Michaela Rose started her AAU JO weekend off with a big win in the 17-18 400m hurdles. She took home the victory, defending her title, in a blistering 59.00 in the pouring rain. That time was just off of her PR of 58.16.
Currently she sits fifth all-time in the state of Virginia behind Brandee' Johnson's state record of 56.16. Chasing that time will certainly be one of her top goals next year considering 56.25 is the US Olympic Trials standard as well.
Rose also has the 800m run slated for this weekend and will be chasing her own state record in that event.
Stay tuned all week and weekend for updates from AAU Junior Olympics with VA results and wins.
