Shamali Whittle Brings The Gold Back To Nottingham High
Shamali Whittle, a freshmen at Nottingham High School, has become the talk of the town. The 14 year old athlete competed at the AAU Junior Olympics in Des Moines, Iowa, where he dominated the 100 meter hurdles and 200 hurdles, bringing home two gold medals and one silver.
Whittle told Hamilton Pulse, "I wanted to win Junior Olympics. This is my second time coming here, I was desperate for a win.” It really showed how bad the rising freshmen wanted to win with that personal best on the 200 hurdles. Shamali Whittle also said, "I’m riding a high now going into high school. I’m very excited."
The young athlete from Mercerville is aiming high. Whittle is trying to join New Balance Nationals. “I want to go sub-55 in the 400 hurdles. In the 200 meters I want to go 21, or mid-21, and in the 110 hurdles a sub-14 is the goal,” said Shamali.
Best of luck with all your goals, young legend!!
