U.S. hurdler Kendra Harrison is ready to get back to competition at the Lausanne Diamond League on Thursday (25 August 25) after missing the Rio Olympics, having finished sixth in the 100-metre hurdles at her national trials.

Harrison told a news conference in Lausanne on Wednesday that watching the Olympics made her keener than ever to get back on track.

She earned some consolation for the heartache of missing out on the Rio Olympics when she broke a 28-year-old world record by winning the 100-metres hurdles in 12.20 seconds at the London Diamond League in July.

It was one hundredth of a second faster than the mark set by Bulgaria’s Yordanka Donkova in 1988 – four years before Harrison was born.

She said she was glad to have the record, but would still like an Olympic medal.

Asked if she thought hurdle heights should be raised, the 5’4″ (1.63cm) tall Harrison said no, they were high enough.
