Runner accurately predicted her 2016 Olympic dreams five years ago

Walking Faster than Others Can Run

It's one thing to daydream about being in the Olympics, but it's another to actualize your dreams—and have Twitter proof of it all.

Morolake Akinosun did just that when she plotted her future five years ago, tweeting in 2011 that by 2016 she would be graduated from college and headed to the Olympics.

Almost five years to the day, the track and field star blessed Twitter with an update.

"I tweeted that five years ago," she wrote. "I graduate from [the University of] Texas in December. I'm going to the Olympics next week."

Keep an eye out for Akinosun in Rio next week, where she will be running in the women's 100m competition and 4x100m relay.
