At 14, sprinter Tamari Davis is already eyeing 2020 Olympics

NBC track and field analyst Lewis Johnson – with a flair for the dramatic – called Tamari Davis “the fastest 14-year-old girl in the history of the planet.”

And he’s right.

Davis, a native of Gainesville, Fla., is a middle-school kid who won’t even turn 15 until February.

She has never lifted any weights, and she often falls behind early in her signature races, the 100 and 200 meters. USA TODAY
