Dello picked to win gold medal
Former ACU national champion hurdler Delloreen Ennis-London is competing for Jamaica this year in the Olympics in Beijing, and she's one of the favorites to win a medal in the 100-meter hurdles.
Dello, in fact, has been picked to win the gold medal by USA Today, while Track and Field News picked her to win the silver medal. Dello is competing in the Olympics for the third time in her career, joining former decathlete / pole vaulter Tim Bright as the only Wildcats to compete in three Olympic Games.
Dello was fourth in the 100 hurdles at the 2000 Games in Sydney, Australia, and was eliminated in the semifinals of the 2004 Games in Athens, Greece.
