Runner Adelle Tracey Traded the UK for Jamaica. Here’s Why

This summer, the British running star will leave her stomping grounds to run for Jamaica.

At just 28 years old, Adelle Tracey is quite accomplished. Not only has the HOKA athlete notched a litany of 800m races around the world, but she’s also a seasoned ambassador for the British Dyslexia Association.

This summer, Tracey made the decision to switch her allegiance from the U.K. to Jamaica. She will now represent the island nation in international competition.

In this video, she explains how she hopes to use her racing and advocacy to inspire and represent Jamaica’s young women.
