Kendziera takes 5th in 400 hurdles

DES MOINES, Iowa —Former Illinois hurdler David Kendziera just keeps going on the national stage. And he's not done yet, either.

Kendziera finished fifth in the 400-meter hurdles finals Saturday at the 2018 U.S. Outdoor Track and Field Championships with a time of 49.22 seconds — nearly a second faster than his opening-round clocking.

Before his 400 hurdles finals, Kendizera also claimed one of four automatic qualifying spots in the 110 high hurdles semfinals at 2:30 p.m. today with a time of 13.81.
