The 2018 AAU Primary Championships at Disney's Wide World Of Sports showcased some of the best youth talent in the United States. Our Sunshine State athletes didn't have to travel too far and with the meet in our backyard so to speak, put up some great performances and brought home some hardware.
Note: We did our best to add as many national champions as we could find as well as those who tagged us on social media. Don't see your athletes? Have pictures you want us to add? Email me at Todd.Grasley@flosports.tv.
