Kellie Wells-Brinkley, OLY, Global Sports Marketing Manager for Saucony, won an Olympic Bronze medal in the 2012 London games. This was a fairytale ending after her heartbreaking injury at the 2008 Olympic Trials, where she was unable to compete in the finals due to a severe hamstring tear. She made an
impressive comeback in 2011 by winning her first indoor and outdoor national titles and dominating the top marks lists. Her winning time of 7.79 at the US trials was the world leading time and, at that time, gave her the nine fastest times in the world. Over her 10-year career, she was ranked within the top 10 in the world each year.

In 2011, Wells-Brinkley went public with another heartbreaking struggle: being sexually abused by her mother’s boyfriend. She escaped this abusive environment in 10th grade by moving in with her estranged father. A few weeks later, her mother was tragically killed in a car accident.

Astonishingly, Wells-Brinkley flourished in life despite all of these set backs and excelled on the track, in the classroom and in her personal life. She's been a brand ambassador for companies such as Nike, The US Army, Coca-Cola, Revolution Racing, Isagenix, and more. She takes pride in using her celebrity to spread the message and create awareness about domestic violence and sexual abuse.

Kellie is a loving wife to NFL superstar Jasper Brinkley and mom to their son Jasper Jr.
