Three Clemson Athletes to Compete at IAAF World Junior Track & Field Championships

July 19, 2010

CLEMSON, SC – Three current members of the Clemson men’s and women’s track & field teams will compete at this week’s IAAF World Junior Championships in Moncton, New Brunswick in Canada. Claudio Delli Carpini will represent Italy in the 110m hurdles.

Kendrick qualified for the U.S. team by virtue of her second-place finish in the 200m dash at last month’s USA Junior Championships in Des Moines, IA. She was also a junior All-American in the 100m dash and thus will be a member of the 4x100m relay. Kendrick was named the ACC Outdoor Freshman-of-the-Year after a pair of runner-up individual finishes in the conference sprints and an All-America performance as part of Clemson’s fourth-place 4x100m relay at the NCAA Championships.

The women’s 200m competition gets underway Thursday, July 22 at 9:55 AM. The semifinals will be held at 6:30 PM the same day, with the final scheduled for 8:25 PM on Friday, July 23. The 4x100m relay first round will take place at 6:40 PM on Friday, with the final scheduled Saturday, July 24 for 4:30 PM.

Fraser will compete in the 100m dash as an individual. His top time as a freshman in 2010 was 10.48 at the ACC Championships. The first round is scheduled for 12:25 PM on Tuesday, July 20. The semifinals (7:00 PM) and final (9:45 PM) are both set for Wednesday, July 21. He will also compete with the Bahamian 4x100m relay. The first round will take place Friday at 7:10 PM, with the final set for Saturday at 4:50 PM.

Delli Carpini is entered in the high hurdles for Italy’s team. He had a top time of 14.07 at the ACC Championships during the 2010 outdoor season. Delli Carpini will compete Friday in the first round at 9:35 AM. The semifinals are scheduled for Saturday (1:35 PM), while the final will be Sunday at 2:35.
