Home » About Bianca Knight

Fast Dreams is the heartfelt story of Track & Field Olympic Gold Medalist and World Record Holder Bianca Knight.

Bianca proved her foot-speed at an early age by setting the collegiate indoor 200m record and by running the fastest time ever by a junior athlete.

Bianca’s astounding win placed her as the 8th Best Performer on the All-Time List with her time of 22.40.

Shortly after the Indoor Championship in 2008, Knight announced her decision to turn professional and leave the University of Texas.

Knight proved to be a key member of Team USA’s 4x100m teams at the 2011 World Outdoor and 2012 Olympics as both teams won gold and the Olympic team smashed a 27-year-long-world record, which they still hold to this day.

By the time Knight graduated from Ridgeland H.S. in 2007, she had won 15 individual state titles at 100m, 200m and 400m among her 23 overall including relays.

She also owns state high school records at 100m and 200m, and was the first Mississippian to be named Gatorade National Girls Track & Field Athlete of the Year.
