Of the eight Ivy track & field Olympians, only Columbia graduate Erison Hurtault has been there before. Representing the island of Dominica, Hurtault ran the 400 meters in Beijing followed by three trips to the semifinals of IAAF World Championships.
Now the 11-time Heps champion is back to do it again. In the above photo, he is with three other Central Park Track Club athletes who are headed to London. They are Julius Mutakanga (Uganda), Moussa Dembele (Senegal) and Jeremy Bascom (Guyana). For more about them and how you can help the CPTC support these four New Yorkers, please click here.
Hurtault had also taken the time to send along a brief video message to the Heps Nation, but the vid didn’t turn out all that well. It works, but it is clear that HepsTrack.com could use a video expert. 😉
