Sandi Morris' statement on Facebook:
Big news everyone! Yesterday, I signed a contract with Nike, and today, I made my first-ever USA World Team. You can catch me in Beijing in August wearing red, white, and blue. Two dreams came two in a matter of a couple days. Hard work does pay off, and so does having an amazing support system like I do. Thank you so much everyone!
