USA Track & Field stars Quanera Hayes and Allyson Felix qualified for the Tokyo Olympics on Sunday.
And then, shortly after finishing first and second in the 400-meter final at US Olympic Trials, the Team USA teammates introduced their young children to one another in a heartwarming display.
Hayes – who edged Felix by 24 hundredths of a second in the race – scooped up her two-year-old son, Demetrius, from the stands and walked him over to the nine-time Olympic medalist and her three-year-old daughter, Camryn Ferguson. The two Olympians embraced before encouraging their toddlers to “Say hi!”
Upon his mom’s urging, Demetrius – who appeared to be wearing a T-shirt with a photo of Hayes on the front – opened up his arms and wrapped Ferguson in a hug. The crowd roared.
“Guys, we’re going to Tokyo!” Felix said.
“Can you say supermommies?” Hayes added. “Supermommies, yeah!”
With her win in Eugene, Oregon, on Sunday, the 29-year-old Hayes qualified for her first Olympics. Fan-favorite Felix will be competing in her fifth career games – but her first since giving birth to her daughter in 2018.
