We can’t wait to watch tonight as NJ native Sydney McLaughlin makes her Olympic debut! McLaughlin is only a senior at Union Catholic High in Scotch Plains. McLaughlin is the whole package: beautiful, outgoing, a star on the track team, AND she has a 3.55 GPA! At only 16 years old, she’s the youngest athlete to make the track team since 1976. She set the world junior record at the Olympic trials when she ran the 400 meter hurtle in 54.15!

Stay tuned Monday, August 15! The races begin at 8:30 p.m.
