What a run from two former Wildcat track stars.

During Sunday night’s 100-meter hurdles event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, who ran track and field at the University of Kentucky from 2015-18, won the GOLD MEDAL with a time of 12.37. Her gold medal victory was the first-ever in an athletic event by Team Puerto Rico. Right behind Camacho-Quinn was another former ‘Cat, Keni Harrison, who earned a silver medal with a time of 12.52 for Team USA. Harrison attended Kentucky from 2015-17.

“It brought me back to Kentucky days,” Harrison said after the race. Camacho-Quinn and Harrison ran side-by-side in the final race.

Two Wildacts, two medals in one event. That’s how you represent the Big Blue Nation.
