Quincy Wilson, a 16-year-old sprinting star, is expected to become the youngest ever US male track Olympian after he was reportedly named to be part of the 4×400 metre relay line-up for the Paris Olympics. 

In his Instagram account, the youngster shared the most exciting news of his sporting career with a caption stating: “WE GOING TO THE OLYMPICS.” 

Joe Lee, the athlete’s coach, also verified the news. He admitted: “The call came directly to me from USA Track & Field… I called Quincy afterwards with the good news.”

Wilson breaking records and making history 

Wilson’s qualification for the Games came after a spectacular performance at the US Olympic trials when he twice smashed the 400m world mark.

Even though Wilson did not qualify for the 400-metre final and finished sixth, he made an impression as he ran an under-18 record of 44.59 seconds in the semi-finals, just two days after he broke the record with a time of 44.66.

Wilson declared: “I don’t know if my season is over yet, I don’t want to go eat ice cream too soon.” 

Wilson has swiftly established himself as one of track and field’s most promising young athletes. The sprinter seems to break records whenever he runs, and he is now looking forward to the opportunity to establish himself on a global scale.
