Hebert said it is hard to choose what his favorite performance is, but he would probably pick setting the new record in last week’s 55 hurdles.
Thorne agreed with Hebert in picking a favorite moment of Hebert’s young career so far.
“What he did this past weekend in the state championships in New York was just phenomenal,” Thorne said. “He was the No. 1 seed, but by no means did I think he was going to run a 7.31. Just watching him in that race just made me feel so good just to be his coach and to be a part of that whole thing.”
Hebert participated in the New Balance Indoor Track and Field Nationals held at the Armory in New York City. He finished second in his heat with an 8.01 time in the 60-meter race. His time was good for sixth overall and will compete in today’s semifinal race.
“I will be racing in the 60-meter race, which is 5 meters longer then normal, so it’s a bit different,” Hebert said.
