WATCH: JaMeesia Ford Breezes To New AAU 400m Record

JaMeesia Ford made a name for herself this outdoor season as a sprint star on the rise both in her home state of North Carolina and nationally.

Ranking within the top 30 nationally for the 100m, 200m and 400m on the season, along with earning three adidas Outdoor individual national titles, certainly put Ford on the track and field community's radar.

And the rising senior from Fayetteville, N.C. capped off her impressive season in exhilarating fashion at the AAU Junior Olympics.

On Saturday, Ford dominated the 17-18yo women's 400m right out of the blocks to not just run a massive one-second personal best of 52.41, but win an AAU title and set a national record in the process.

That mark surpassed the previous AAU national all-time best of 52.66 clocked by Christine Mallard last year.

Prior to Saturday's final, Ford captured the win in the 200m on Friday, as well as finished second in the 100m just an hour after the 400m title race to make for a Junior Olympic medal haul of two golds and a silver.
