About Joanna 
While yet to claim individual glory as a professional on the national or international stage, Joanna Atkins has proven herself to be a vital part of a very strong 4x400m relay team over the past couple of years. A year after finishing second in the 4x400m relay at the World Outdoor championships, Atkins and her team -- Natasha Hastings, Francena McCorory and Cassandra Tate -- dominated the competition at the 2014 World Indoor Championships in Sopot, Poland en route to world champion status. Atkins competed collegiately at Auburn University, where she claimed an NCAA Outdoor 400m title and garnered two All-American selections. While at Auburn, Atkins majored in Business.
