HBCU sprinter Quanera Hayes advances to US Olympic trials final


With a little over a month before the start of the 2024 Paris Olympics, the top American track and field athletes are looking to earn an opportunity to compete for gold.

One of them is former Livingstone sprinter Quanera Hayes, who came one step closer to claiming a spot on the Olympic team on Saturday.

Hayes advanced to the finals of the 400-meter dash, qualifying on time after running a 50.46 second time, finishing third in her heat.

The former three-time NCAA champion 400-meter sprinter is looking to clinch a spot in her second-ever Olympics, having qualified for the 2021 games.

She will compete in a loaded field that includes former Olympic gold medalists Kendall Ellis and Lynna, as well as reigning Division I 400-meter runner-up Kaylyn Brown.

The women’s 400-meter final will be broadcast on NBC and Peacock on Sunday at 9:58 p.m. EST.
