The 2015 Gatorade National Boys Track and Field Athlete of the Year from Vista Murrieta High School (Murrieta, CA) equaled the nation's best-ever time in the boys 400 meters in his junior season, crossing the line at 45.19. That was good for first place. His time broke the 44-year-old record by more than three seconds. The previous record was 41.88 set by Edwin Moses in 1969.
Bryant is the second straight winner from California after Long Beach Poly's Derek Murphy took home the award last year. The Gatorade award is given to the country's top male and female athletes ages 18 and under as determined by sales of Gatorade products nationwide.
Bryant has been unstoppable this spring. He owns the national high school records in the 100 meters (10.49), 200 meters (21.37) and 300 meters (32.48). He also holds the California state records in the 100 meters (10.44), 200 meters (21.31) and 300 meters (32.36).
"I'm really excited about getting a chance to compete on the international stage this summer," said Bryant. "I want to thank Gatorade for giving me this opportunity and my parents for supporting me throughout my career."

Candace Hill established the previous world junior and US high school records of 10.98 in 2015 at the Brooks PR Invitational. [A Runner's World Training Plan, tailored for any pace and distance, can help you smash your objectives.]
She also holds the American junior record with a time of 21:43.70. She set this mark at the 2016 USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Sacramento.
Her father, Chuck Hill, is a former college sprinter who now coaches his daughter along with others. Candace started running when she was four years old and didn't stop until she graduated from high school. She currently attends Baylor University on a track and field scholarship.
When she's not studying or training, you can find her playing with her dog, Buster, or watching movies with her boyfriend, Abe Ogarashi. They both run cross country at Baylor University.
In addition to being athletic, Candace is a great role model for young girls who may feel like they don't have what it takes to be an athlete. Through hard work and determination, anyone can reach their goals.
She has committed to running for Baylor in 2017 and 2018. With more than one year left before she competes against adults, she has plenty of time to break her own records.
