Further proof former Kentucky track star Kendra Harrison is a badass

By now, you know that Kendra Harrison is a badass. The former UK track star broke the world record for the 100m hurdles last summer, clocking in at a scorching 12.2 seconds. Harrison continues to train with UK track coach Edrick Floreal, and on Friday, she broke her hand warming up for the 100m hurdles at the Doha DL in Qatar. Instead of bowing out of the race like most mortals, Harrison not only ran it, she won it. By a lot. With a broken hand.

Afterwards, she was rushed to the hospital, where she was fitted with a cast:

Surely that earned Harrison some rest and relaxation, right? Wrong. Harrison was back on the track at UK today, even though she’s scheduled to have surgery on her hand on Thursday:

Incredible. You go, girl.

    Proud that she represents this University, and doing it in such badass ways.
