She was also part of the team that won the silver medal in the same event and 6th in the world at 400 meters at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.[1][2][3] Track and Field Head Coach at LeMoyne-Owen College since 2021.


At college-level, she was an NCAA Division I 400 m champion and won NCAA All-American honours eleven times.
