Wingspan: What got you started in track and what’s your favorite part about it?

Gibbs: What got me in track was Coach Vay. She told me I could be special and that I had a lot of potential.

Wingspan: What’s been your most memorable moment of being in track?

Gibbs: The most memorable moment in track had to be the first time I ran the 110 hurdles because I didn’t think I would do well but I did. 

Wingspan: What’s the hardest thing you’ve had to learn through your journey? What’s the most difficult part about this sport?

Gibbs: The hardest thing I’ve learned is that even though things get hard you have to fight through in order to succeed. The most difficult part of track is definitely the Saturday workouts in preseason.  After that it gets easier.

Wingspan: Who’s your biggest inspiration?

Gibbs: My biggest inspiration is my dad because he is so motivational and inspiring to help me make it to the next level. 

Wingspan: If you could give any advice to anyone wanting to do track, what would you say?

Gibbs: Advice I would give people wanting to run track would be, to just have fun and embrace challenges, don’t run from them.
