Dawn Harper-Nelson returns to the track

Beijing 2008 Olympic Games 100m hurdles champion Dawn Harper-Nelson, who retired in 2018 and was planning a comeback this year, is still targeting Tokyo 2021.

The 35-year-old, who gave birth last year, told teamusa.org: “As long as my body is telling me I can do it, we’re going to go for it.”

“Now it is like I have to keep my excitement and a little bit of anxiety for a whole other year,” she added.

“I feel like Tokyo 2020 now turning into 2021 is going to symbolise that the world has overcome this pandemic and everyone is back to health.

“We are here to celebrate so much more than just winning. It is almost like the world winning,” she said.
