Brittney Reese on her start in long jump, the 2008 Games and tattoos
I have the Olympic rings on my chest with the word 'Beast.' My nickname for track and field, I got it in college, is B-Reese the Beast. I have track shoes and some footprints on my back left shoulder from when my great grandma died. She is the reason why we moved to Gulfport (Miss.). She passed away a few years ago, and I got that because her favorite song was 'Order My Steps.'
Now I have a cross with a dove under it, and that symbolizes everyone that I've known that has passed away, on my right arm. On the inside of my arm, I have 'Born a Champion.' I got that because I feel that I have been successful all my life. I just got that because I like those words. On my stomach, I have 'Live Life Love Family.' That's just mainly because I'm a family person. I base my life around my family.
