Harrison Competes in 4x100m Relay in Tokyo


Buckeyes at the Olympics 


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State sprinter Eric Harrison competed in the first round of the 4x100m relay at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as he represented Trinidad and Tobago. The relay team finished sixth in the heat and 13th overall with a season-best time of 38.63 as Harrison ran the second leg. This concludes Harrison’s Olympics appearance.


Harrison graduated in May with a degree in communications technology. He won a Big Ten outdoor championship in the 200m in 2021. Harrison was named an All-American in 2018 following a runner-up finish at the NCAA outdoor championships in the 4x100m relay and a Big Ten team outdoor title. At that outdoor championship, Harrison won the 200m, ran a leg on the 4x100m relay team that set a Big Ten record and finished third in the 100m before being named Big Ten Freshman of the Year.


Prior to his time as a Buckeye, Harrison represented the United States at the IAAF World U20 Championships. He won gold in the 4x100m relay and bronze in the 100m and 200m.
