Olympic Sprinter Runs Track, College Prep Program

Sprinter Alainn Pompey has a busy schedule to say the least. Not only is the 400 meter specialist training for her fourth appearance at the Summer Olympics, she's also heading up the Armory College Prep program at the New Balance Track and Field Center in Manhattan. The program serves more than 200 underprivileged students a year and helps them get into college. When Pompey isn't running the track, she can be caught teaching, modeling, writing, coaching and consulting.
