Ziyah Holman, an 18-year-old freshman at the University of Michigan, recently competed in her first college track meet. There, she showed her fans and competitors what she’s made of!
Serving as the anchor, or final runner, in a 4×400-meter relay race, she received the baton with her team in last place — and the next runner ahead of her by a whopping four seconds. To other athletes, it might have seemed impossible to win, but Ziyah always competes with this mindset: “Go get them, see how far you can get.”
Her mantra clearly works wonders for her! Over the course of her two-lap run, she sped by every competitor to bring her team the victory. Oh, and she did it all in under 52 seconds!
Watch her jaw-dropping comeback in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story with your friends.
