Mary Foday joins the 11 seconds club

June 15, 2016 By Sahr Morris Jr.

High School graduate Mary Foday has joined the 11 seconds club of elite women sprinters in the world when she clocked 11.85 seconds at the DMV Elite Invitational to place first last Saturday.

A recent graduate of Central High School in Maryland, Mary has been passionate in making it past the 12 seconds mark in the 100 meters for a while and in a short interview with African Sports Monthly, she explained how running below 12 seconds had been her ambition before exiting High school and her passion was so intense that she wrote on her Vision Board last year (2015) that in 2016 she will run an 11.80 seconds 100 meters race.

Just a week to her graduation from High School, she was able to achieve her aim of running under 12 seconds for the first time in her budding track career. Mary, who is one of several lady sprinters in the United States that have committed to run for Sierra Leone, will now join 11 seconds sprinters, Hafsatu Kamara, Ngozi Musa and Maggie Barrie.

Mary will next compete at the US High School Nationals in the coming week and she hopes to put up another spectacular performance and lower her time even more.
