Finals: Who'll Be The Top Girls Hurdler Of The Past Decade?

What is this?

Over the next few weeks, MileSplit Georgia will be matching up the best athletes from each discipline from the past decade (2010-2019) with only one being crowned the best of the decade as voted on by the fans.

The Brackets

Using top marks, and State Championship performances we have selected the top 16 best athletes to compete in each discipline.

The Parameters 

Athletes were selected from the years 2010-2019 while also having competed in at least two seasons within the time frame. Athletes that were multi-talented, were chosen based on the events that they were most accomplished in so an athlete can only compete within one of the selected brackets.

How it works 

Athletes can only advance with the help of fans to vote them ahead of the competition each week. Athletes accolades and personal bests will be listed beside each poll match up to help aid your decision. This is a chance to relive the past ten years of Georgia's elite performers and cheer them to victory one more time, so have fun!
