Johnson and Johnson advance

Here’s a release, courtesy of UCLA, on Bruins and former Bruins in the Olympic Track and Field Trials:

Former Bruins Brandon Johnson and Sheena (Johnson) Tosta advanced to
the finals of the 400m hurdles at the U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene,
OR after strong performances in the semifinal rounds of the men’s and
women’s respective races.

Johnson, who now runs for Nike and ended his UCLA career in 2007, ran
just off his lifetime-best as he finished seventh overall with a run
of 48.68.

Tosta, formerly Sheena Johnson, was 2nd overall in a time of 54.95.

Both will run in the final of their respective races on Sunday, while
another former Bruin, Monique Henderson, will begin competition in the
quarterfinals of the 400m.
