U.S. Olympian is Coming to Kentucky

This summer Sydney McLaughlin represented the United States in Rio.  Next summer she’ll be running at the University of Kentucky.

McLaughlin became the youngest U.S. Olympic athlete since 1972 when she advanced to the 400-meter hurdle semifinals this summer in Rio.  She’s set many national high school records in the hurdles, her specialty.  That’s why she chose UK over USC.  Kentucky alum Kendra Harrison is the current 100-meter hurdle world record holder.

Edrick Floreal already has one Olympic hurdler on his team, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn.  Now, he has two.

    She is Not the youngest U.S. Olympian since 1972. I don’t know where that statistic came from, but it’s false.
