Addison Moore (Versailles, KY) entered the AAU Junior Olympic Games as an up-and-coming athlete to watch, chasing after distance titles as a heavy favorite in the 14-year-old division.

She didn't wait long to make her presence known at North Carolina A&T's Truist Stadium. A win in the 1,500m early in the week and a fourth-place finish in the 800m allowed Moore to put her distance talent on full display.

But come the 3,000m final on the last day of competition at the Junior Olympics, Moore took to the track ready to run something special.

The rising high school freshman had never gone below 10 minutes before at the 3,000m distance. But Moore pushed the pace from the gun en route to shattering her personal best of 10:21.62.

She raced through the line in 9:57.45 to grab her second title of the event and end her rather impressive Junior Olympics showing. Moore's time even made for an AAU all-time best, solidly surpassed London Culbreath's previous record of 10:02.40 from 2016 to become the first girl in the 14-year-old division to dip below 10 minutes.

Now, Moore returns home to Kentucky as a new AAU national record holder and a distance talent to watch come high school.
