After suffering a heartbreaking injury at the 2008 Olympic Trials where she was unable to compete in the finals due to a hamstring tear, Wells made an impressive comeback in 2011 by winning her first outdoor and indoor national titles, and dominating the top marks lists. Wells’ winning time of 7.79 at the 2011 USA Indoor Championships was the No. 1 time in the world for the year, and at the time gave her the nine fastest times in the world.
