record in the 110m high hurdles at the FSU Relays Friday. Harnden finished
first in the event and his mark of 14.20 was fast enough to earn an NCAA
Provisional Qualifying time. Harnden also earned a Provisional Qualifying
time and a lifetime best time in the 400m hurdles this past weekend.
Harnden is from Harare, Zimbabwe and has been one of the Seminole’s
top hurdlers this season. Harnden posted the fifth fastest time in the ACC
during the 1999-2000 indoor season in the 60m high hurdles and he has
secured five top 10 finishes in the hurdles over the past year.
Harnden, a civil engineering major, lives and trains with his
brother who was a national champion in the 400m hurdles while at the
University of North Carolina and who, in 1996, ran for the Zimbabwe Olympic
