On Thursday evening, the World Championships in Athletics took place from Eugene, Oregon.

Ready to hit the track tonight is former collegiate track star Abby Steiner. The former Kentucky Wildcats star set the track world alight this year with an incredible performance.

She started her career in Kentucky doubling up in football and track and field. However, after concentrating her efforts on the track, she became one of the fastest students in the country.

Steiner set the NCAA outdoor record in the 200 m with a 21.80 to win the NCAA title.

After her college career, she signed a deal with Puma.

“The next chapter.. Officially the newest member of the Puma family!” she said in the caption of a post.

Now she races against some of the fastest women in the world. Earlier this week, Steiner booked his ticket to the 200 meters final at the World Championships in Athletics after finishing second in his semifinal.

She’ll hit the runway at 10:30 p.m. ET in the US.
