DOHA, Qatar –
While his teammates were competing for a national championship in Arkansas over the weekend sophomore sprinter Kevin Borlee was representing his country at the IAAF Indoor World Championships in Doha, Qatar.


Borlee along with his brother and former Seminole, Jonathan Borlee, helped the Belgian squad earn second place in the 4x400m relay and set a Belgian indoor record in the event in the process. The second place finish was the highest on the world stage for the 4x400m relay crew.


A pair of former Seminoles were also in action over the weekend as Barbara Parker competed in the 3000m and Ricardo Chambers competed in the 400m and the 4x400m relay.


Parker finished fifth in her heat with a time of 9:01.52 narrowly missing advancing to the final.


Chambers ran a 47.06 in the opening round of qualifying to advance to the semifinals where he ran a 48.02 finishing sixth in his heat and missing out on advancing to the finals.


Chambers also ran the anchor leg of Jamaica’s 4x400m relay that ran a season-best time of 3:06.03 to advance to the final but an injury to the team kept them out of the final.
