Queen Harrison had plenty of competition growing up. Along with her eight siblings, Queen was challenged by her father who had the family up early doing sit-ups, push-ups, and running before school. For Queen it all paid off, as living up to her name she achieved greatness. Queen went on to Virginia Tech where she became one of the most versatile and accomplished track athletes in NCAA history. Competing in both the 100 meter hurdles, and 400 meter hurdles Queen dominated her competition, and not just NCAA competition. In 2008, at only 19 years old, Queen was the youngest qualifier for the United States track team for the Beijing Games.
Two years later in 2010, Queen completed an unprecedented double becoming NCAA champion in both the 400 meter and 100 meter hurdles. The stellar season resulted in her winning the Bowerman award, given to the top NCAA Track and Field athlete of the year. Upon graduation Queen signed on with Saucony where she was runner up in the 2011 US Outdoor championship and competed for Team USA in Deagu, South Korea at World Championships. Queen now trains in South Carolina and appears poised to become the next hurdle star for the United States.
