Young athletes from across North Texas have a wonderful opportunity coming up that they won’t want to miss out on. Four-time Olympic Gold Medalist, world record holder, and native Texan Michael Johnson is hosting a track camp in July for youth interesting in involving their running and sprinting techniques.

Young athletes between the ages of 9 and 18 will receive world-class coaching from Michael Johnson Performance coaches and Olympic athletes that will hone their sprinting efficiency, speed, power, and mental focus. The first 50 youth athletes that sign up for the camp will be entered for a chance to win a private coaching session with Johnson as well as a pair of limited edition Nike running shoes.

We chatted with Johnson this morning about the camp, being a native Texan, and training in our crazy summer heat. Tony even challenged him to a race!

The 6th Annual Michael Johnson Premier Track Camp will be held July 8th through 11th. Registration is $349. Parents can registers their young athletes at michaeljohnsonperformance.com or by calling 469-424-6572.
