What is Remona Burchell's net worth? Jamaican sprinter keeps her trophies inside a closet
Jamaican sprinter Remona Burchell is all set to give tough competition to other participants in the women's 4x100 meters relay final, which is happening on Friday, August 6. She and her team including Briana Williams, Natasha Morrison, and Shericka Jackson qualified for the final at the Tokyo Olympic Games on Wednesday night, August 4.
The 29-year-old is a graduate of the University of Alabama. While running for her university, she became a three times winner of the NCAA Championship, winning the 60 meters at the NCAA Indoor Championships in 2014 and 2015. In the 2014 NCAA Outdoor Championships, she came at 11.17 seconds into a severe headwind and won it.
What is Remona Burchell's net worth?
Born on September 15, 1991, in Jamaica, Burchell is a well-known runner, who started as an athlete in her early life after completing her formal education. Her club name is SprinTec Track Club [Spanish Town, Jamaica]. Not much is known about her private life or relationship status. She is also not quite active on social media as only three pictures are there on her Instagram page while her last post on Facebook is from 2018. However, about her wealth, some reports have stated her net worth is estimated to be around $1 million - $5 million. She has reportedly made much of her money through sports.
During a 2014 interview with BamaCentral, Burchell had revealed a very interesting fact about herself. She said that unlike most people, she likes to put her trophies in her closet. At the time, she told Christopher Walsh after becoming the first woman in school history to win a 60-meter NCAA indoor championship, “I put it in my closet. It's still in the box. It's in my closet with my two trophies that I got from junior college. They're all together, right there.”
Burchell also shared that she takes pictures of her trophies in her cell phone so that she can see them whenever she wants. About her achievements, she said, “I still can't believe that I'm a national champion. I still think about it, 'Like really? This just happened to me', but it did,” before adding, “I've been doing track and field since I was small. Primary school in Jamaica, which would be middle school over here, and from that time I knew that I was fast. But I really, really didn't expect to run this fast my first year here at Alabama. Not so quick. Not so soon.”
And now since Burchell is competing in the Olympics, her fans are quite excited to see her performance. After Team Jamaica tweeted, “Team Jamaica finishes 3rd in Heat 1 of the Women's 4x100M with a time of 42.15. They are through to the final: Briana Williams Natasha Morrison Remona Burchell Shericka Jackson #TeamJamaica #GuhHaadAndDone,” one such fan said, “Jamaica really got the finest girls.” Another one wrote, “Remona Burchell will be medal-eligible should Jamaica finish in the Top 3 in the finals Friday morning.” “Remona Burchell was always going to run the heat. It really was between the other 3 and we only needed one, which we now have,” the third one added.
