Aurieyall Scott (born May 18, 1992 in Atlanta, Georgia) is an American sprinter who specializes in the 60 and 100 meter dash (indoor) and 100, 200, and 400 meter dash (outdoor).[1]

College career[edit]

With the University of Central Florida track team Scott won the school's first NCAA title in any sport, taking the 60 meter title at the 2012 NCAA Women's Indoor Track and Field Championship with a time of 7.13 seconds while leading her team to a 5th place finish.[2]

International career[edit]

Scott won double gold at the 2012 NACAC Under-23 Championships in Athletics in the 100 meter dash and 4x100 relay.[3]

At the 2013 USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships Scott finished 6th in the 100 meter dash with an official time of 11.00 second. This time was equaled by Muna Lee, but Scott won the tie-breaker with 10.998 vs. 10.999 and thus defeated Lee by one-thousandth of a second.[4] By virtue of placing in the top-6 of the 100 meter dash, Scott was included in the United States delegation to the 2013 World Championships in Athletics.[5]

Scott was entered into the Athletics competition at the 2013 Summer World University Games (Universiade) in Kazan, Russia, initially competing in 200 metres and the 4x100 relay. As a late addition to the 100 metres, she won the gold medal with a time of 11.28 seconds.[6]
