HSInternational is pleased to announce the signing of Kyra Jefferson, the 2017 NCAA Champion and Record Holder in the Women’s 200m.

Her father, Thomas Jefferson, is the Bronze Medalist in the 200m of the 1984 Olympic Games held in Los Angeles, CA.
Emanuel Hudson, Attorney and Director of HSInternational (HSI), stated that “Kyra is a fantastic athlete and a very good person. She has already pledged to provide support to her community in Detroit, Michigan by being involved in local projects. We look forward to being a part of this young lady’s professional career and personal endeavors.”
