PROVO, Utah - On Thursday NBC 11-Sports introduced you to Robert Harrison, a 13-year-old track and field athlete who has already set records and has a promising future.
Harrison took the first big step toward that promising future on Friday. Actually it wasn't a big step, it was a long jump. Harrison soared 17-feet 10 3/4-inches in the long jump on Friday at the Junior Olympics Regionals in Provo, Utah. That was good enough to earn a thrid-place finish and qualify him for the Junior Olympics Nationals.
Harrison followed that with a very respectable sixth-place finish in the discus. The real excitement could come on Saturday during the triple jump. He is seeded #2 in his age group, seven inches behind the #1 seed.
