"Sharing my story continued my journey of healing."

Your Story Matters

Sanya Richards-Ross is the fastest American woman in history at 400 meters. She became the first American woman in 28 years, and only the 2nd in history, to be crowned Olympic Champion over 400m at the 2012 Games in London. Surging past her competitors in the last 50 meters of the race, Richards-Ross claimed her crown as 400 meter queen in dramatic fashion.  The London games also set the stage for Sanya to become the second most decorated female track and field Olympians of all time. By winning her 4th gold medal, after anchoring the 4x400m relay team to gold for the 3rd consecutive time, Sanya firmly solidified her place in sports history.

In addition to Sanya's track prowess, Sanya is also an Entrepreneur, TV Personality, Public Speaker and Humanitarian. She is the founder of the Sanya Richards-Ross Fast Track Program in Kingston, Jamaica which has provided over 700 children with literacy training, physical education, and healthy meals. Her sports clinics educate, empower and provide youth with tools and strategies to excel both on and off the track.  

Recently, Sanya and her sisters launched their new company Cordi Nation a community, platform and resource for moms of stylish families who like to move and dress as a unit.
