Broadneck High School graduates Farrah Hall and Matthew Centrowitz both have their eyes on the gold this summer.
Hall, 30, a 1999 graduate of BHS, qualified for the London 2012 Summer Olympics in March after showing off her world-class windsurfing abilities. The Annapolis native started windsurfing when she was 13, and since then, competing in the Olympics has been her dream. This year, she'll get her chance.
She's already in London now, getting ready for the big games. On Tuesday, Hall uploaded pictures of her meeting with Prince Charles to her Facebook.
Centrowitz, 22, a 2007 graduate of BHS, middle-distance running champion and Arnold resident, went pro at the end of last year and has since been setting records and winning events across the country.
On Saturday, the young star won a national title by placing first in the 1,500 meter run at the U.S. Track and Field Championships in Oregon with a running time of 3 minutes 47.63 seconds, according to The Washington Post.
Centrowitz will compete in the 1,500 meter run at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials this weekend, The Capital reported. He must place in the top three in order to make it into the Summer Olympic Games in London.
The 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London begin July 27.
