As he prepares for his debut at the Penn Relays, Liberty redshirt freshman hurdler Jovaine Atkinson chatted with Nick Pierce of the Liberty Flames Sports Network.

Atkinson has enjoyed a spectacular 2017, setting program records for the men's indoor 60 hurdles (7.94) and men's outdoor 110 hurdles (14.01). He also raced to the Big South men's indoor 60 hurdles title in February.

A native of Spanish Town, Jamaica, Atkinson currently ranks No. 32 nationally for the men's 110 hurdles, including third among freshmen.

Atkinson is scheduled to compete in both the men's 110 hurdles and the shuttle hurdles relay at the Penn Relays, which will be contested Thursday through Saturday at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pa.
