Clemson Sprinter Qualifies For Olympics
DES MOINES, IA (CU SID) -- Clemson Junior Warren Fraser qualified for the Olympic Games with an “A” standard time of 10.18 in the first semifinal of the 100-meter dash on Wednesday, the first day of the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
Fraser finished 13th overall and while he did not advance to Friday’s
final, he was thrilled with the news that he will be making his first trip
to the Olympics to represent his native Bahamas in August.
“I feel a big relief,” Fraser said. “When I heard Coach (Tim) Hall yell
out the time, I sighed. My start was good, but I could have done even
better. I wanted to do well and make the final, but I’ll learn from it
and excited to hit the Olympic mark.”
