RAIDER ATHLETICS

India Bradley ‘27 Wins Gold at Junior Olympics
She credits her lucky pikachu socks, which she borrowed from her older brother Rocco, but India Bradley is no stranger to hard work and dedication. A fourth-grade student at Gulliver, India’s favorite subject is math and she spends her time playing basketball, volleyball and competing in track and field relay races, 100m and 200m sprints. But when you ask India about her passion, she gets excited to tell you about competing in the track and field long jump. “The long jump is a lot of fun because I can soar through the air and really see what I am capable of; and I like to win.” And win she does. >>Read the full story in Miami's Community Newspapers.
