16-year-old girl wins adults’ championship, to Olympics?


This 22 February 2020 video shows the finals of the Dutch indoor track and field championship: sixty metres-dash for adult women.

As the video shows, the winner was 16-year-old N’ketia Seedo. Being 16-year-old means that Ms Seedo is in the Junior Girls B category of Dutch track and field. Supposedly, as she grew older, she would first go to the Junior A category, and later still to the adult women category. Yet, she won the adult women’s championship.

N’ketia Seedo’s winning time was 7.24 seconds. The second-fastest time ever anywhere in the world of an under-18-year-old woman. Only Tamari Davis from the USA had ever been faster.

This March 2019 video is about Ms Seedo when she was 15 years old; including her playing saxophone.

Seedo, of African Surinamese ancestry, was born in Utrecht city. Like Dafne Schippers, former 200 metres-dash world champion. Ms Seedo yesterday ran faster than Ms Schippers when she was 16-years-old.

She now wants to go to the Tokyo Olympics later this year. If she succeeds in that, then she will be youngest ever 100-metres-dash runner at the Olympics. She will try to be in the 4 x 100 metres Dutch women’s relay team, maybe together with Dafne Schippers. Maybe the individual 100 metres four years later, at the next Olympics.

Maybe at the Tokyo Olympics, Ms Seedo will meet Keet Oldenbeuving, one year younger, European skateboard champion, also from Utrecht.
