Let's not get too complicated here.
The main point?
Kansas-native Juliah Bolden, a 10-year-old in 2019, absolutely crushed the competition a season ago at the AAU Club National Championships, scoring a victory in the 100m in a time of 13.08 (-0.2), which produced a winning-margin of 0.54 seconds.
At that age, it's not so much about the technical moments which make the run impressive, but rather the instincts that Bolden exemplified, even at such a young age.
Bolden's talent continues to shine.

But sure enough, Bolden continued her efforts beyond that weekend.
A few weeks later, the young athlete traveled to the AAU Junior Olympics in Greensboro, North Carolina, and scored official personal records of 12.80w and 26.57 seconds in the 100m and 200m, respectively.
