ABOUT BRITTNEY
Just once since her elite career started has Brittney Reese not recorded the furthest long jump in the country for either indoor or outdoor competition (she was ranked No. 2 in the USA in 2011). Along with three World Indoor and Outdoor Championships gold medals, Reese has recorded the furthest jump in the world indoors in 2010 and outdoors both in 2009 and 2011. Also active in the community, during the 2011 Thanksgiving season, Reese purchased 100 turkeys to be given away to help the homeless surrounding her current residence of Gulfport, Miss. Only Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Marion Jones have jumped further in American history in the long jump. At Gulfport High School Reese was also Mississippi’s 2004 Gatorade Player of the Year for track.
