Athing Mu is the sixth in a family of seven children. Her mother was seven months pregnant when she came to America. That child is Athing. Parents of Athing Mu, escaped from Sudan and fled to the United States due to get rid of fundamentalist religions and miserable cultural ties. It is not difficult to understand the life they began in America in the midst of so much trouble.
Her brothers, who are accustomed to the difficult life in Sudan, are good at running and jumping. These people, no matter how poor, are very interested in sports. Running along with his siblings at an elementary school in New Jersey, USA, Athing is coming to the track. Despite her father’s dislike, Ethan’s mother believes that this ugly girl will one day win America. That is why this mother encourages her daughter to play sports more than learning.
Gradually practicing, Athing gets a two-month sports scholarship as he gets older. Time goes by. One day Athing Moo would make a junior world record in the 600 meters. With this great news, Athing will be back at the Haywood Racecourse in Oregon last week.
This girl, who is just eighteen years old, has changed so much that she can’t see. Instead of a skinny dark complexion, this boy had a wonderfully tall, attractive appearance.
I was reminded of Marie Jose Parek, the greatest athlete France has ever produced. I would like to say that this eighteen-year-old girl is the number one American in the selection games for Olympic Games, recording seven minutes (1.56.07), which is one of the best times in the world this year. Her competitors were Aji Wilson is a two-time World Athletics Bronze medalist, Raven Rogers who won the silver medal at the last World Championship and also another hope for America. In the midst of these experienced athletes, Athing easily won this match.
If there is anyone who likes athletics, you can watch this race on YouTube. Mung also won the 400-meter dash at the previous American University Championships. The recorded time is 49.5 seconds. This time it surpasses American champion Canara Hayes and Allison Felix. In the 400m 4×4 backstroke, Athing Moo finished the race in 48.4 seconds, capturing the attention of the world.
(As far as I can remember, only Allison Felix has run this fast at the 2012 London Olympics).
Meanwhile, the Sudanese authorities tell another beautiful story, even though this player belongs to South Sudan and was born in America. Although this statement is refuted, the publishers of that country say that the clothes on the bed have grown too much.. it is harmful to the culture. This is what shameless stories are all about. Her family came to America to get rid of fundamentalist religions and miserable cultural ties. This little girl who turned that pain into a victory is very much appreciated.
With the arrival of Athing, the 800 meters at the Olympics will take on a new face. It would be great if Athing had a chance to compete in the 400×4 backstroke with World record holder Sydney McLaughlin, Dalilah Muhammad and Allison Felix.
No matter how much we love other sports, but athletics is common all over the world. Coming from an extremely poor country .. you can be happy to see a little girl who conquers the world.
Athing Mu is an American middle-distance runner. At the age of 19, she won a gold medal in the 800 meters at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, breaking a national record set by Ajee’ Wilson in 2017, and a continental under-20 record. (Wikipedia)
