The 2016 AAU National Jr. Olympic Games were held last week in Houston (Humble), Texas (July 30th - August 6th) and the Tallahassee Trailblazers track & field club represented the state of Florida and the city of Tallahassee quite well.
Galen Johnson - 13 Year Old Boys was a main highlight at the event maintaining his status as #1 in both the 100m & 200m dashes through quarter finals and semi finals to win both in the Finals! [100m (11.34) and 200m (23.11), both PRs.]
