Tallahassee, FL - A group of local track stars is going for the gold!

The Capital City Christian Cruisers (CCCC) are heading to the Junior Olympics.

Eleven-year-old, Miahna Harden, says, "It's so awesom because it's going to be my second year. I'm going for the gold. Whoo hoo. Last year, it was my first time. I got 6th in the 100 and came in 9th in the 200 and 3rd in the 400."

To get to the Junior Olympics, Harden says, "It takes a lot of training and conditioning and running."

Eleven-year-old Campbell Hart, says, "It feels good because I might win a gold medal or money. I practice a lot with my team and so I won a few races."

The team is a ministry under the non-profit, "Winning America's Youth", which is dedicated to reducing at-risk youth entering the justice system...

Twenty-two youth from the team have qualified for the AAU National Track and Field Junior Olympics.

The Junior Olympics will be held in Des Moines, IA on July 28 - August 2, 2014.
