An Ole Miss presence on Team USA was not a surprise. Brittney Reese expected to be there.
To have double representation for the Rebels was, perhaps, a bit unexpected, but that’s what Ole Miss has after Isaih Young secured a spot in the London Olympics with his third-place finish in the men’s 200 meters Sunday in Eugene.
Young ran 20.16, easily besting his Ole Miss record of 20.32. He won the SEC title earlier this year but finished fourth at nationals. The disappointing NCAA meet lingered, obviously, as he referenced it in a short TV interview after the trials.
