Master Sgt. Latisha Moulds, recruiting and retention NCO at the 101 Air Operations Group, participated in the HQ Aircom Track and Field Championships May 26-28, 2015. Moulds competed on a team composed of active duty Air Force, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves. All components of the Air Force were allowed to apply and compete.

Moulds was selected as captain of theĀ  eight-member women's team and co-captain of the 23 member USA team to compete against the NATO Air Forces of Germany, Poland, Netherlands, and United Kingdom.

Moulds has competed in track and field since high school including during her four years at the College at Delaware State University. She first heard about the competition from a friend and applied for the first time in 2013. Moulds has been on every USAF track and field team since then as well as two armed forces world teams.

"My role as team captain entailed accountability of the women's team, organizing team practices, transportation and lodging logistics, and pretty much ensuring the team had everything they needed to perform their best" Moulds said.

During the HQ Aircom Track and Field Championship, Moulds participated in the 100 meter run, 200 meter run, long jumps, and relays. Individually, she won the Long Jump and took third in the 100 meter run; as a team they won the championship title.

"There is no greater feeling than to be able to wear USA across your chest and represent your country through sports competition." Moulds said, "I plan to run and compete until my body says no more."
