Brianna's track and field career began in high school. She had always been a great athlete but it was not until Brianna started racing against others that she knew her future was in track and field.
After an outstanding high school career at La Mirada High School in California, Brianna accepted an athletic scholarship to the University of Arizona. She excelled on and off the track in 2001 becoming the first female athlete in NCAA history to win the long jump and a sprint event at the 2002 NCAA Outdoor Championships. Later that season, Brianna finished 3rd in the long jump and 6th in the 100-meter dash at the USA Championships. The following season, Brianna became USA Champion in the long jump and was a gold medalist at the NACAC games.
In 2005, Brianna finished 3rd in the USA Championship long jump. The University of Arizona honored Brianna for her athletic accomplishments in 2007 by inducting her into the University Hall of Fame.
After undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery weeks before the 2008 Olympic trials, Brianna returned to form in 2009, finishing as the runner-up in the long jump at the 2009 USA Outdoor Championships and qualifying for the World Championships in Berlin.
Brianna credits the sport of track and field for molding her into the person she has become: stronger, more determined, confident, independent, humble, and grateful for every opportunity she's been blessed with. She plans to remain in the sport as long as she feels a purpose to fulfill and believes her best years are ahead of her.
As the 2012 Olympic Games in London approach, Brianna is determined to once again represent her country at the highest level of athletics.
