Devon Allen

Age: 21

Hometown: Phoenix, Ariz.

 

Allen made Hayward Field sound like Autzen Stadium as he won the 110-meter hurdles in a personal best of 13.03 seconds. Allen won his first U.S. national title in 2014 but there was no world championship or Olympics that year. He returned to football in the fall and suffered a knee injury that would force him to miss the 2015 outdoor track season. He returned and won the 2016 NCAA title in the 110-meter hurdles and downed an Olympic trials final field that included Olympic gold medalist Aries Merritt and silver medalist Jason Richardson.
