Run U Xpress, NC

Class of 2021, Boys 17-18 -- 100m, 200m, 100mH

Nunley competed in arguably the best race of the Games last year -- if not the best race all together (above).

In an epic matchup that saw the North Carolina athlete win by one-hundredth of a second, Nunley got out hot, stayed in control and managed to finish out the race in winning fashion. He he will be back for more action as he is looking to defend his title in the 110mH. 

He stopped the clock last year with a time of 14.18. That was his third-best time of 2019, as he had other performances of 13.87w and 14.14.

While second-place finisher Michael Bourne (14.19) won't be back, Dunbar's Leonard Mustari will. He finished in 14.42 seconds. And his appearance could give Nunley a run for his money. 

During the indoor season, Nunley ran the third fastest 60mH time in nation with a 7.82. He also won his first AAU Junior Olympic title in 2015 in the 80mH.

This year, he's scheduled to run the 100m, 110mH and 400mH in the 17-18 age group.
