The 24-year-old athlete is seen as a tough competitor in the women’s 100 meters relay final
Teahna Daniels is seen as a tough competitor in the women’s 100 meters relay final that is happening on Friday, August 6. The five feet and seven inches tall sprinter is representing the US for the first time in the Olympics. After getting selected for the Tokyo Games, she took to her Instagram and wrote, “Talk to me nice! I don’t need to prove nothing to no one! I WORK HARD and have faith in my God given abilities! I’m also so blessed to have an amazing support system! All of y’all played a HUGE part in getting me to this point but IT’S NOT OVER!! WE GOING TO TOKYO!”
But Teahna is not new to world-level competitions. She started young while still in high school. She received four 100m titles at the FHSAA State Championships and a 60m title at the 2015 New Balance Indoor Nationals in high school. The Florida native is a graduate of the University of Texas in Austin and competed for their athletics team, Texas Longhorns. She also represented the university at the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships for three years while being there.

But her first professional break happened in 2014 when she bagged a national medal (bronze) in 100m sprints after completing 6th in 200 meters Sprints at the US Junior Track and Field Championships. The following year, she received her first national title in a 100m sprint at the US Junior Athletics Championships before getting honored with her first NCAA title in the 60m sprint longhorns at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in 2016.
What is Teahna Daniels' net worth?
Teahna is the daughter of Wellice and Linda Daniels. She also has seven siblings, which include three sisters and four brothers. According to Olympics.com, “Her mother encouraged her to join a track team after she beat the boys in her neighborhood while wearing flip flops.”
Teahna lost her father three years ago. After his demise, whenever she competes, she wears a necklace that has his date of death on it. Explaining the reason behind it, she said, “When my dad passed away, getting back into it was probably the hardest part, finding that motivation again and even having the spirits to train. It took me out of that college mindset, it took me into reality if that makes sense. It told me that life is real, and you need to make the best of it and take things a lot more seriously than you do now because anything can happen, at any time. I know he's always at the finish line and I'm running to him.”
On June 20, Teahna shared a very loving picture of her with her father and captioned it, “If i could make one wish, it’d be to get a few moments with you again. To let you know all the hard work you and mommy put in paid off. YOUR baby girl is an Olympian! I love and miss you everyday daddy, this is just the beginning of it all!” before adding: “#HappyFathersDay to my guardian angel!”
However, not much is known about Teahna's dating life. It has been said that she is single. But reports about her wealth are out there and her net worth is estimated between $1million to $5 million. Her sponsor is Nike and her agent’s name is Kim Vanderlinden.
