15-Year-Old Sprinter Hannah Cunliffe

So after getting a lot of organic search engine traffic from this post about Duane Starkenburg, I decided that posting about local running news every now and then could be a good thing for my blog.  Therefore, today I'm going to post about Hannah Cunliffe, a 15-year-old sprinter from Federal Way.  I found an article about her in the Seattle Times yesterday, and as a runner I was immediately interested.  Let's just say that this chick is FAST!

The picture to the left is of Hannah as she sets the AAU national record for her age group at 11.86 seconds in 2010.  She was running with a HEADwind I might add.  Damn, look at those quads!

She has since surpassed that time by over a tenth of a second - her current PR on the 100 is 11.71 seconds.  Just to give you a little bit of perspective, that time would have easily won state in Washington, would've taken 3rd at the Pac-10 championships, and would've ranked 4th in the University of Washington's women's all-time list.

Clearly Hannah has some serious talent.  Already she's looking to the Olympics, and is planning on running in the 2012 qualifying heats.  I have no doubt that she's going to make it.  A girl running an 11.86 in 8th grade is definitely future Olympic material in my book (and most other peoples').

To the right is a portrait of Hannah when she's not running.  Not even that bad looking, hehe... JOKING, she's 15, I know.  I'm not getting any ideas, don't worry.

Below I've embedded some videos of her.  The first is a video put together with footage from the 2010 AAU event I mentioned earlier.  The 2nd is a Seattle Times video that goes along with the article I based this blog post off of.   Here's the article: 15-year-old sprinter is on fast track to fame


  1. Hope to see her at Nationals and the Olympic trials in 2012.

  23. Hey !

    Marina here, from Airia Running (, the Swedish company behind the fastest running shoe - Airia One. It’s not just a marketing claim - rigorous testing shows that 8 out of 10 runners run faster in Airia One running shoes (shaving anywhere from 1% to 7% off their run time).

    But this email is not about that.

    I want to recruit you personally to run an independent test of Airia One. I’ll bribe you with a free pair. I also respectfully request that you do a write up about your run for your readers.

    Please try a long distance race to really feel the difference of running in Airia One. I’m emphasizing the racing part because it’s really important that you actually race in them. We spent decades engineering and designing Airia One to specifically be the best running shoe - and you are a runner and an early adopter. You are the real life chance to test our years of work. I am counting on you to push both yourself and Airia One to the limit.

    Please send your address and shoe size to get your free pair of Airia One.

    I really hope you take me up on this offer/challenge and have your best run ever.

    Kind regards,
