Former University of Kentucky track star Sydney McLaughlin continues to dominate the Diamond League. Today, Sydney won the 400m hurdles at the Herculis meet in Monaco, finishing in 53.32 seconds, the fastest time in the event this season.

Fellow former Cat Kendra Harrison also won her event, the 100m hurdles, in a season-best 12.43 seconds. I haven’t found a video of the race yet, but her smile as she crosses the finish line is priceless:
Kendra Harrison hurdled her way to victory with a remarkable time of 12.43, season’s best! 2nd place went to Danielle Williams with 12.52, another season’s best. Christina Clemons came in third with 12.62 #HerculisEBS #DiamondLeague #MonacoDL pic.twitter.com/fW9ZJsy2Xm

Tokyo 2020 is going to feature a lot of Kentucky Blue.
