The Trenton, New Jersey native is a two-time Olympic Gold medalist and looks to add more hardware during her second Summer Games.

In 2021, Mu captured Gold in both the 4 x 400m relay and 800m events of the Toyko 2020 Summer Olympics.

Mu recently won a couple more medals during the World Championships in 2023. She earned Bronze in the 800m a year ago. However, she won Gold in the same event in 2022.

Mu is the second youngest of seven siblings. Her parents emigrated to the United States of America from Sudan before she was born. Mu’s older brother, Malual, also competes in track & field at Penn State University.

When Mu is preparing for the Olympics, she enjoys DIY projects, including photography and room decor. She also creates YouTube videos. One day, Mu hopes to own a farm.
