If you walked by Brittney Reese on the sidewalk, you would most likely pass by her slender frame and shy grin without realizing who she is. She blends in around here with her love of Ajax catfish, piano lessons and Xbox 360, and word of her success never passes through her own lips.

If you walked by Brittney Reese on the sidewalk, you would most likely pass by her slender frame and shy grin without realizing who she is. She blends in around here with her love of Ajax catfish, piano lessons and Xbox 360, and word of her success never passes through her own lips.

“I’m a homebody, and I just like to stick to myself,” she said.
