UO release – EUGENE, Ore. — Three alums of the UO track and field program clinched spots Sunday in the World Athletics Championships, capping the four-day USATF Outdoor Championships at Hayward Field. All three fell short of U.S. titles in their events, and identified areas of improvement before they return to Hayward Field for Oregon22. But all three — Devon Allen, Jenna Prandini and Raevyn Rogers — were able to appreciate their accomplishments this weekend all the same. Allen is still adjusting to a new starting technique in the 110 hurdles, and he finished third Sunday in 13.09 seconds. Prandini was in command of the 200-meter final but slipped to third in the final few meters, in 22.01 seconds. And Rogers also took third in her own signature event, the 800 meters, in 1:57.96. But all three will have the chance to cap their seasons on an even bigger stage in July, when the World Championships are contested at the same location where they competed as collegians.
