Adaejah T. Hodge, 16, smashes World U18 & U20 Records in 200m

After breaking the US National High School Record in the Girls 200m on Saturday, March 11, 2023, the Virgin Islands teenage sprint phenom Adaejah T. Hodge returned to the track in the finals of the 200m at the New Balance Nationals Indoor in Boston on Sunday, March 12, 2023, to not only smash her own record but to also set a world record in the Girls U18 and U20 200m.

The high school junior from Montverde Academy -- just 16 years old, her 17th birthday arriving in 10 days – achieved the world standard with her time of 22.33 seconds.

Hodge, who a year ago competed for the [British] Virgin Islands at the CARIFTA Games and picked up wins in the 100m, 200m and long jump, had run 23.39 prior to this weekend.

She posted a time of 22.77 in the prelims, which broke the high school national record of 22.89, which was set in February by Mia Brahe-Pedersen (also a junior).

"I just came off the curve and just let everything on the track," Hodge said.

[British] Virgin Islands teenage sprint sensation Adaejah T. Hodge crushed the US National High School Record in the Girls 200m at the New Balance Nationals Indoor (NBNI) in Boston, Massachusetts on Saturday, March 11, 2023.
