Cunningham and Bracy Take Silver at World Championships

EUGENE, Ore. – A pair of former Florida State track and field athletes put together phenomenal performances on the world stage at the World Championships in Eugene, Ore. Trey Cunningham and Marvin Bracy each took home silver for Team USA in the 110m hurdles and 100m dash, respectively.

In his first World Championship, Cunningham made his presence known in one of the deepest events of the entire meet. Cunningham ran 13.08 in the finals to take silver, just barely missing gold by 0.05 seconds. Cunningham put together a time of 13.07 in the semifinal earlier today. Sunday concluded a terrific season for Cunningham. In seven months, Cunningham won two national championships, a silver medal at the World Championships and finished second at the USATF Championships.

Bracy found himself on the podium in one of the most historic performances in track and field history. Bracy finished second in the 100m dash (9.88) as Team USA swept gold, silver and bronze in the event. This was the third time the U.S. has swept the event, but it was the first time the Red, White and Blue had accomplished that feat since 1991.


The World Championships will run through July 24. Tomorrow, former Seminole and five-time national champion Kimberly Williams will look to snag a podium spot in the triple jump, which begins at 9:20 eastern time. Coverage can be seen on the NBC Sports Networks and Peacock TV.
