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
