Runners with ACU ties headed to Olympics

Abilene Christian University track and field athletes earned spots on the Jamaican Olympic team.

Former eight-time NCAA Division II hurdles champion Delloreen Ennis-London finished second in the 100-meter hurdles at the Jamaican Senior Trials to earn a spot on her third Olympic team. Ennis-London finished fourth in the event at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, before seeing her medal bid end in the semifinals of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.

Also at the Jamaican trials, former ACU national champion Marvin Essor finished fifth in the 400 meters (46.04) and will run on the Jamaican 4-x-400 relay team. Essor will be making his first Olympic appearance.
