Local teen congratulated by First Lady

MIAMI – A local sophomore was congratulated by Mrs. Michelle Obama during her recent Let's Move campaign in Miami.

Namiya Crespo and her jump rope team the Supersonics, are heading to the Federation Internationale de saut a la Corde International Rope Skipping Federation (FISAC-IRSF) World Championships in Hong Kong, China in July 2014.

Mrs. Obama hugged Crespo and recognized the teen's hard work, being a good example of healthy children today. Crespo is recognized as one of the fastest Speed Double Dutch jumpers in the U.S.A., performing 420 jumps in 60 seconds.

Crespo and her team have competed locally, nationally and internationally for the past 12 years.
