Rewind: Live chat with Olympic hopeful & former NCAA hurdle champ Ginnie Crawford
Ginnie Crawford has been a hurdle champion in high school, college and as a professional and later this month will be trying to earn a spot on the U.S. Olympic team for the first time.
A Seattle native, she won several track and field titles at Rainier Beach High School, then went on to claim multiple Pac-10 and NCAA championships while at USC.
At the 2006 NCAA Outdoor championships, Crawford broke the collegiate record in the 100m hurdles, a record that she shared with Gail Devers. Her winning time of 12.48 seconds gave her a second consecutive NCAA 100m hurdle crown. For her accomplishments, she was the recipient of the 2006 Honda Award, which is given to the outstanding college athlete in a given sport.
She also won back-to-back U.S. Outdoor crowns in the 100m hurdles in 2006-07.
Crawford talked about her track and field career, training for the U.S. Olympic Trials and more in a live chat June 6 on seattletimes.com.
