GAINESVILLE -- Big news on Tuesday from the other side of the world. Former Gators track star Kerron Clement (pictured) won a world championship in the 400-meter hurdles at the 2007 IAAF World Championships in Osaka, Japan.
Clement's gold is the second individual world title for a Gator in a men's event. John Capel won a world championship in the 200-meter dash in 2003. Clement's 400-meter hurdles time of 47.61 is the world's fastest outdoor time of the year.
Novlene Williams, another former Gator, will be racing for gold today in the women's 400-meters world championship final.
No news yet on who would win in a 40-yard dash between Clement and Percy Harvin.
