(EUGENE, Ore. ) - University of Oregon freshman hurdler Devon Allen was named the USATF Athlete of the week after capturing the 110 meter hurdles title in a stunning upset at the U.S. Outdoor Championships in Sacramento, California, on Sunday, June 29.

Battling temperatures reaching into the 90’s and getting up to 120 degrees on the track at Hornet Stadium on the campus of Sacramento State, Allen (Phoenix, Arizona) finished with a wind-aided 13.16 (13.155) to hold off a stacked field that included defending US champion Ryan Wilson (13.160) and defending world champion David Oliver (13.23).

Allen also won the NCAA Outdoor Championship in the men’s 110 hurdles in June, running a legal 13.16. The wide receiver for the Ducks football team is the first person since Renaldo Nehemiah in 1979 to win both the NCAA and USA championship.
