NAME: CHLOE ABBOTT, 400-METER OLYMPIC HOPEFUL

"I realized I was fast in my high school sophomore year. I don't know if it was the 100 or the 200. Let me take that back. I actually knew I was fast when I beat my sister. That's the truth. So sad. All of my greatness and confidence came from beating my sister.."

Once the Olympics are over Abbott hopes to focus on her singing

Her favorite artists include Etta James, John Legend and Sia

"Right now, the Olympics and the Olympic Trials take a lot of time, effort, and energy, and now I learned that I have to focus on the track aspect and not so much the music right now."
