Jamaica’s steeplechase record holder Aisha Praught has signed with Under Armour RUN team.
The Under Armour RUN team, in a statement, said they are excited to announce Praught, who ran 9:19.29 for a new Jamaican record in Doha on 5 May 2017.
Praught, who represented Jamaica at the Olympic Games in Rio 2016, was born in the USA. She decided to honor her Jamaican heritage and run for their national team after reconnecting with her biological father in 2013. She ran in the 2016 Olympics and was the first Jamaican runner ever to compete in the finals in the steeplechase.
Under Armour is thrilled to add Aisha to the team and looks forward to working with her on upcoming campaigns and providing her with the brand’s latest running footwear. She is currently running in the Miler Pro and soon-to-be-release Under Armour Charged Bandit 3.
