American track and field star Kendra “Keni” Harrison chatted with Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos about the greatest lesson that her sport has taught her.

She holds the world record in the women’s 100 meter hurdles with a time of 12.20 seconds, and she is representing Team USA at the Tokyo Summer Olympic Games.

On the greatest lesson that track and field has ever taught her, Keni Harrison remarked, “You need to put in the hard work. You can’t cut corners to be the best. For me, it did take a disappointment to pull that world record out. I was able to not give up, and that’s a lesson that I learned.”

“Even though things might not happen the way that you want, you will see the payoff when you put the work in. Work hard is the biggest lesson that I learned and not giving up on myself.”
