Devon Allen won the 110-meter hurdles Saturday in the U.S. Olympic Trials at Hayward Field. Allen will represent University of Oregon and the USA in the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Allen's school-record time of 13.03 is the second-fastest in the world this year.
Allen's parents, Louis and Bernadette, have created a GoFundMe to help with trip expenses to watch their son compete in Rio De Janeiro.
The fund goal is $15,000; the rasied money would cover airfare, room, ground transportation and some meals for 10 days. Within 18 hours and 59 donations, the fund has raised $3,420.
