About Ajeé
Wilson is universally regarded as one of the rising stars in the women's 800m. She captured back-to-back USA Indoor Championships in 2013 and 2014, staking her claim as the best female 800m runner in America. Wilson made a quick transistion from being one of the top high school athletes in the country to competing as a professional and making her first senior team. After graduating from New Jersey's Neptune Academy of Allied Heath an Science in 2012, Wilson decided to forgo collegiate athletics to stay near home and continue training with her coach Derek Thompson and the Juventus Track Club of Philadelphia. Wilson currently attends Temple University in Philadelphia.
