Isiah Young has competed in the Olympics. He holds the Ole Miss records for the 100 and 200-meter. Now, he is looking to take home SEC and NCAA Championships.

Young competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. He qualified in the 200, and made it to the semifinal heat before being eliminated.

“I can say that I’ve been there,” Young said. “Not many people can say they’ve been to the Olympics. Now that I look back it was a pretty big accomplishment. I’m going to take that and use it as motivation to try and get back to the next one."

The senior has run the 100 in 10.07, and the 200 in 20.16 seconds, both of which are Ole Miss records.

Last week, Young was named co-runner of the week by the SEC, after he posted a time of 10.09 seconds in the 100. 

The fastest man to ever run for Ole Miss is looking to dominate in the final races of his collegiate career.

Young will look to win the 100 and 200 at the SEC and NCAA Championships. The SEC Championships will take place May 9-12, and the NCAA Championships will be June 5-8.
