UK’s Nick Anderson Places Eighth at World Junior Championships 110H Final

UK TrackField 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (7/25/14) — Kentucky freshman Nick Anderson finished eighth in the IAAF World Junior Championships 110-Meter Hurdles Final while representing the United States Thursday at Oregon’s Hayward Field.

Running out of lane eight, Anderson clocked a time of 13.93. The World Junior Championships Final was the fastest in history as the race featured the U-20 World Record in addition to the second-fastest time in history. France’s Wilhem Belocian won, breaking Wayne Davis II (USA and Texas A&M – competes for Trinidad and Tobago at senior level) World Junior Record, while the Silver Medalist ran 13.06, which was also .02 seconds faster than Davis’ previous mark.

The 110m hurdles is run over 39-inch (99 cm.) hurdles, which are three inches shorter than those used in NCAA and senior-level competition.

Anderson made it through the preliminary and semifinal rounds respectively each of the past two days with respective times of 13.61 and 13.68. He was dealt a tough lane-assignment as his semifinal time was the slowest of those that qualified for the final.

He is one of five Wildcats to represent his nation in international competition this summer.

Four Wildcats qualified to compete at the North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association Under-23 Championships, which will be held in British Columbia, Canada in August by virtue of their performances at Senior National Championships last weekend.

Kendra Harrison (100m hurdles), Sha’Keela Saunders (long jump) and Matt Hillenbrand will compete for the U.S. at the NACAC U-23 Championships, while Raymond Dykstra (javelin) will compete for Canada on home soil.
