Four Gators secured spots on Team USA Saturday with stellar performances in the men's 400 meters, men's 400-meter hurdles and women's 1,500 meters. Two current Gator All-Americans made the cut, including freshman Arman Hall in the men's 400 meters and junior Cory McGee in the women's 1,500 meters.
Hall was phenomenal Saturday, crossing the finish in 45.01 to nab his spot on Team USA with LaShawn Merritt and three-time Gator NCAA Champion and Olympic silver medalist Tony McQuay, who earned the silver in 44.74..
McGee defeated six professional athletes en route to her U.S. bronze medal in the women's 1,500 meters. McGee finished in 4:29.70 and joins Treniere Moser and prep phenom Mary Cain.
Former Gator NCAA Champion Kerron Clement earned the opportunity to represent his country again with his silver-medalist finish in the men's 400-meter hurdles. Clement finished in 48.06.
