Track Beauty of the Week: Brianna Glenn

Brianna Glenn is this week’s track beauty!

The American long jumper has a personal of 6.81m, set in 2008. In major meets, the 30-year old had finished 9th in the 2009 Berlin World Championships, leaping 6.59m. Recently, Glenn got 7th place at the IAAF Continental Cup held in Split, Croatia, with a modest leap of 6.28m.

A promising 2008 Olympic campaign was cut short by a knee injury. She had surgery a few weeks before the cutthroat U.S. Olympic Trials. Glenn had also distinguished herself off the track, maintaining a 3.5 GPA throughout her college days in the University of Arizona.

Like her compatriot David Oliver, Glenn maintains an informative blog, which in my opinion, is one of the best elite athlete blogs out there.
