Female Olympian challenges Miller to race after report he joined girls track meet

A female Olympic runner is challenging White House adviser Stephen Miller to a race after a report revealed he had joined the end of a girls track meet in high school to try and prove his athletic superiority over women.

Alexi Pappas, a Greek-American Olympic runner, tweeted Monday that Miller should name the day, linking to the report of Miller's high school athletics.


Pappas represented Greece in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, where she set a national record during the 10,000 meters race.

The New York Times reported Monday that Miller had jumped into the last leg of the girls' high school track event in an attempt to show that he was more athletic than the women competing. 

The White House didn't deny the account to the Times, instead pointing out that the team was from a different high school.

Miller has proved an enduring figure in the Trump administration and is responsible for helping to craft immigration and national security proposals, in addition to writing some of President Trump's biggest speeches.
