Sanya Richards-Ross is the fastest American woman in history at 400 meters. She became the first American woman in 28 years, and only the 2nd in history, to be crowned Olympic Champion over 400m at the 2012 Games in London. Surging past her competitors in the last 50 meters of the race, Richards-Ross claimed her crown as 400 meter queen in dramatic fashion. The London games also set the stage for Richards-Ross to become the second most decorated female track and field Olympians of all time. By winning her 4th gold medal, after anchoring the 4x400m relay team to gold for the 3rd consecutive time, Richards-Ross firmly solidified her place in sports history.
In addition to Richards-Ross's track prowess, she is also an entrepreneur, TV personality, public speaker and humanitarian. She is the founder of the Sanya Richards-Ross Fast Track Program in Kingston, Jamaica which has provided over 700 children with literacy training, physical education, and healthy meals. Her sports clinics educate, empower and provide youth with tools and strategies to excel both on and off the track.
Richards-Ross retired from the sport in 2016 and subsequently joined the NBC broadcasting team as a track and field analyst. She published her memoir "Chasing Grace: What the Quarter Mile has Taught Me about God and Life" in 2017.
In October 2021, Bravo announced that Richards-Ross was joining the fourteenth season of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."
Richards-Ross is married to her college sweetheart, Aaaron Ross, two-time SuperBowl Champion and entreprenur. The couple now reside in Atlanta, GA with their son Aaron Ross II.

I have worked with many agencies to book guest speakers over the past 5 years. My experience with AAE has been the best. The website, search facilitation software, and speaker briefs were great. The follow-up and support from the sales agent and logistics manager were excellent. We will no doubt be in touch next year.
