Allen in Semis of 110-hurdles at Rio
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — After a day off, Usain Bolt returns to the track in his quest for more gold — in his favorite event, too: the 200 meters.
Bolt says he always feels confident going into the 200. Then again, the fastest man on the planet has never lacked for confidence.
Also today, Devon Allen, the University of Oregon football and track standout, races in the semifinals in the 110-meter hurdles. Allen ran a time of 13.41 seconds to narrowly finish second yesterday in his qualifying heat. Oregon alum Johnathan Cabral also advanced out of his heat in the race.
Current Oregon sprinter Deajah Stevens won her preliminary heat yesterday in the women's 200 meters to advance along with former Duck Jenna Prandini.
