Razorbacks Compete On International Stage
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Former and current Razorback Track athletes are set to return to action following the conclusion of Olympic trials for their home nations. Arkansas will be represented across the world as athletes are set to compete internationally in several events.
Fresh off defending his national title in the 110-meter hurdles, Omar McLeod returns to the Diamond League circuit where he has been unbeatable. The Indoor World Champion looks to build upon his world-leading time of 12.97 seconds in the event. Dominique Scott-Efurd makes her professional debut in Monaco just after recently being announced as part of Team South Africa for the Olympics. The highly accomplished Razorback will see her first professional action in the 3K.
Taliyah Brooks will travel down to the North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association (NACAC) Championships which is being held in El Salvador. Brooks will be competing in the heptathlon in which she holds a career best 5,991 points set this year at the Nike Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays.
After finishing third at the USATF Junior Championships, Rachel Nichwitz booked her ticket to run at The World Junior Championships in Poland. The distance specialist will take on the 3K Steeplechase as the lone Razorback representative after teammate Devin Clark went down with a foot injury.
