In the 2008 Olympic trials, track and field star Kellie Wells suffered a devastating blow when she tore her hamstring and was unable to compete. But now, the 30-year-old is back and bounding to new heights after scoring the second spot in the women’s 100-meter hurdles.
But Kellie isn’t only about athletics; find out what the fashionista told us about food, fun and fitness:
Kellie: It’s a great honor to be an Olympian because we have such rich culture and a melting pot of people. I am happy to representative them.
Kellie: Five to six days a week.
Kellie: I try to keep it basic: pastas, chicken, shrimp, fish, veggies, a lot of fruit and salads. I love cashews, too!
Kellie: I would be doing something in sports marketing or event planning for a sports team.
Kellie: I don't have just one! Pizza, ribs, gummy candy -- top three.
Kellie: Coach and Dolce & Gabanna.
Kellie: Idris Elba.
Kellie: I have two: my mother and Jackie Joyner-Kersee. My mother was so strong! She worked two jobs and went to school to get her bachelor’s degree in teaching so she could try to provide a better life for us. She instilled so many amazing values in me and showed me what hard work and dedication meant.
I absolutely LOVE Jackie because she was such a fierce competitor while being so humble. She could do it all and do it all so well. When I was a child I would watch her and Gail (Devers) compete, and they seemed larger than life. I always believed I would be there one day.
Kellie: I’ve been working on some of my patented dance moves!
