Elahi Looks to Repeat as Big 12 Hurdles Champion
AMES, Iowa- Iowa State sprinter Kianna Elahi is producing high performances as the 2011 outdoor track and field season continues. Elahi joined the Iowa State women's track team in 2008 from Millard North High School in Omaha, Neb. She has gone on to win the 2010 Big 12 Conference 400-meter hurdle title and last week finished second in the event at the Drake Relays in a personal best 56.73 seconds. The junior has come a long way since picking Iowa State as a place to run and study.
