Watch Sydney McLaughlin at the NCAA Championships

The UK Track & Field Team is at the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon, and tonight, Sydney McLaughlin will run in the semifinals of the 400m hurdles and the 4x400m relay. Both events will air live on ESPN2 starting around 9 p.m. ET.

The superstar freshman set the collegiate record in the event at the SEC Championships last month (52.75 seconds) and was the top qualifier in the NCAA East Preliminaries. The heavy favorite, she should easily qualify for the finals on Saturday. Nationals could be her final event as a collegian and, appropriately, it takes place at Hayward Field, where she qualified for the Rio Olympics nearly two years ago.

“I’ve run on that track a few times,” McLaughlin said. “Great track, great atmosphere. Lots of people in the stands. Just a great place to run. I think NCAA nationals will be a great one to add to the list. I’m just excited to be back there.”

Just after the 400m hurdles, you can watch Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, Kianna Gray, and Kayelle Clarke in the semifinals of the 200m, followed by Tim Duckworth in the finals of the decathlon. McLaughlin will run again in the final event of the night, the women’s 4x400m relay, an event in which Kentucky’s team has the best time in the nation. That starts around 10:18 p.m. ET.

Here’s the complete schedule for tonight’s events, including Kentucky’s participants. ESPN2’s coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET.
