Tyler trio headed to Jr. Olympics

By Ryan Peterson - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -   Every track and field star dreams of competing in the Olympic games.  If you make it the junior Olympics, you're off to a pretty good start.  The Tyler trio of Kymbreonna Davis, Brittany Browning and Bre Howard has qualified for the A.A.U. Junior Olympics in Norfolk, Virginia next month.

The 13 and 14 year olds have been sweating it out this summer five days a week. Now they get to share the junior Olympic experience together.

"Our coaches and our parents have been pushing us," said Howard.  "And believing in us to do it."

The girls say they can get on each others nerves, but they make each other better.

"They're both like my sisters," said Davis. "It's fun to be with them. We all help each other out. When we're doing something wrong, we'll let each other know."

Browning agrees.

"It's like we all grew up together because we all have been running track together and we all get to follow our dreams with each other."

All three girls will be competing in the 4x100 Meter Relay.  Browning also qualified in the 100 Meter Dash.  Davis qualified in the Long Jump and Howard will compete in the 100 Meter Hurdles.
