Santa Barbara Track Club’s Barb Nwaba is Going to Rio!!!0
We just had an experience like no other this weekend as we watched our daughter’s track coaches compete in the Olympic Trials in Eugene, OR. Four of Santa Barbara Track Club’s (SBTC) Heptathletes and on Decathlete competed at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials! What a thrill it was to watch her face and to hear her cheer them on. Our daughter has been participating in SBTC for the last 2 years and absolutely loves it. A lot of that is because of these coaches and the inspiration they bring to the kids in the club. It is an amazing program! What could be more inspiring than having your coach become an Olympian!?!?
Coach Barb Nwaba, UCSB graduate, set a Hayward Field Heptathlon record and also tied the Olympic Trials record, clinched her second U.S. Heptathlon title, and secured her first U.S. Olympic Team spot!
Congratulations, Barb! We are so proud of you!
