Tara Davis (born May 20, 1999) is an American track and field athlete. She is the American Junior Record holder in the indoor long jump. She broke the record February 11, 2017 at the Dumanis Sports Group Prep Classic in Frisco, Texas, jumping 6.68 m (21 ft 10 3⁄4 in). The previous record, set by Carol Lewis had stood for over 36 years, since 1981. Davis is also a hurdler and triple jumper.
Later in the year, running for Agoura High School, she won three events at the CIF California State Meet. Her win in the 100 meters hurdles in 12.83 beat the National High School Record, but it was aided by a +3.7 mps wind. Her mark is the best under all conditions in history. She also set the state record in the long jump. Her 22 ft 1 in (6.73 m) beat the 24 year old record by disgraced Olympian Marion Jones, who at the time jumped for another Marmonte League school, Thousand Oaks High School. A few weeks earlier, she had run the hurdles in 12.89 at the Ventura County meet.Video on YouTube It was the second fastest wind legal race in history. She was selected Ventura County Track and Field Athlete of the Year.
As a University of Georgia student athlete, Davis broke Klaudia Siciarz's world U20 record in the 60m hurdles with a time of 7.98 seconds, during the 2018 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships. In the same meet, she came 3rd in the long, completing a University of Georgia sweep. She finished behind Keturah Orji and Kate Hall.
