Harding’s Calvin Austin @ USATF

We are so proud of Harding junior Calvin Austin who ran at the USA World Youth Track Championships in Illinois June 30–July 1. After a grueling first day, he ran the 200 (21.85) and 400 (49.26), finishing in the top eight – qualifying for finals – and recording personal bests in both events.

At finals, he focused on the 200 and long jump and bypassed the 400 because of the scheduling of the events. Calvin finished 5th in long jump (22-01.75) and 6th in the 200. He finished in the top eight in both events against athletes across the nation. (He’s actually a year younger than the other athletes he competed against in running events)

Congratulations, Calvin!
