After clocking a new U.S. No. 4 time for the 200m, Sole Frederick of Druid Hills (GA) claimed the victory in Week 6 of our National Performer of the Week presented by Firefly poll, narrowly winning over Bullis School's (MD) Sydney Sutton.

Winners of our NPOTW program will receive a Firefly Recovery starter kit from our presenting sponsor. For athletes interested in Firefly Recovery, you can also use promo code MILESPLIT to receive 15-percent off any Firefly Recovery Starter kit purchase. 

Frederick got it done at the TFCUSA Indoor Championship in Alabama on February 11 in both the 60m and 200m. She ran away with the title in the 200m, blazing her way to a 23.55 -- which is now ranked fourth in the U.S. at the distance -- and followed with a time of 7.53 in the 60m.

For her effort, she garnered over 800 votes and 36-percent of the voting -- just about 50 more votes than Sutton. 

With a weekend filled with fast-times and records being broken, we have six new deserving nominees on this weeks poll. 

Just like last week, voting will close on Friday at 12:00 p.m. Winners of our NPOTW program will receive a Firefly Recovery starter kit from our presenting sponsor.
