USA Track & Field Outdoor Championships – Sacramento, Calif. – June 26-29, 2014

OUTDOOR USATF CHAMPIONSHIP - “This will be the first time that I am competing at USA Nationals and there is not a title on the line.  To say that I have won a National Championship would be a personal accomplishment for me. USA; USA!” - Two-Time Olympic Medalist Dawn Harper Nelson

OUTDOOR USATF CHAMPIONSHIP - “I am looking to enjoy myself at the [USATF Outdoor] Championship.  Everyone is saying that when the 100m hurdlers step on the track they expect fireworks. I am looking forward to giving fireworks.” – Two-Time Olympic Medalist Dawn Harper Nelson

OUTDOOR USATF CHAMPIONSHIP- “I have been talking with my coach, and we have had some really good practices.  At Nationals there will be some great competitors.  I have been saying this all year, but I feel I am finally to the point that I am running my own race.  With the hurdles, you are always learning and figuring out what works for you. I feel that I am in the best shape of my life, and mentally, I am prepared to handle any challenges that come with competing.  Again, it will be exciting to run in guaranteed great weather and a fast track.  The ladies will give you fireworks.  Just exciting to be running in Sacramento, [Calif.].” - Two-Time Olympic Medalist Dawn Harper Nelson
