After two years at the National Training Center in Clermont, the 2018 Flo Golden South Classic (formerly the Golden South Classic) will return to The First Academy on May 19, 2018. The Orlando school will play host to the 42nd edition of the meet that has seen high school All-Americans, NCAA champions, Olympians and more in its storied career.
The event, sponsored by ASICS, will feature both the prep and classic divisions, like in past years, as well as a professional men's and women's 100m dash, which promises to give fans in attendance an extra dash of excitement.

The event includes athletes and teams from Florida, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Louisiana Texas, Indiana Virginia, Maryland, and even the British Virgin Islands.
In addition to fast, TFA coach Moushaumi Robinson, a University of Texas alum and member of the 2004 gold medal 4x400m relay, promises the meet will also be fun. Bounce houses, food trucks, face painters, and balloon artists make this the perfect day for a family outing. Coach Robinson as well as Olympian Bershawn "Batman" Jackson will also be on hand for a 45 minute training session and the opportunity to mingle with the athletes and fans.
"My goal as head Coach at TFA in partnering with FloSports to host the new Golden South, is to bring together the best athletes, clubs, and coaches in Florida and surrounding area in the sport of track and field and celebrate, athletics at all ages and talents," Robinson said. "From the Classic division, to Elite, to the professional races, Flo Golden South promises to be a fun-filled, competitive start to the summer track season."
