SportsTuesday: For Ziyah Holman, stunning comeback brings moment in the spotlight

For Holman, the race itself wasn’t as stunning as the social media attention it garnered. For 47 months, every four years, track is a sport that often blends into the background. She was a three-time Gatorade Player of the Year in high school, but that doesn’t bring the same fame as it does in football and basketball. So when Saturday’s video went viral, it brought Holman a level of attention she’s never experienced before.
