Two-time NJCAA champion Kenny Bednarek is heading to Tokyo, Japan to compete in the Olympics. Bednarek won those championships in 2018 and 2019 while competing for Indian Hills before turning pro.
The 22 year old sprinter qualified for the Olympics after placing 2nd in the 200 meter dash at the Olympic trials on Sunday. Bednarek ran a personal-best 19.78 seconds in the 200 meter sprint, finishing just behind the winner, Noah Lyles, who finished in 19.74 seconds.
Along with the 200 meter qualification, Bednarek also came in fourth place in the 100 meter dash, which will qualify him to compete for the 4 x 100 relay team.
