“Maia has been running before she could walk. At the age of 3 she was already keeping up with kindergarteners!” Maia’s father and coach, Charles Flanagan, tells us. “She started her first official season shortly after her sixth birthday & was ranked fourth in the country in the 200m dash. 
This year she has committed herself to being “the fasted 7-year old on the planet!” She has a tireless work ethic and a drive second to none!”

IFBB Pro Phisique Athlete Donna Jones made this great movie, featuring Maia’s journey to the top:

Maia ran in an invitational last Saturday showcasing the top nine fastest girls, age 8 and under, in the country at the Sun Angel invitational and she’s well on her way to reaching her goal!
