It's Not Queen Enough!
Queen Harrison Rocks “Say Yes to the Dress”
2008 US 400m hurdles Olympian and 2010 Bowerman Award winner Queen Harrison starred in an episode of the US reality TV hit “Say Yes to the Dress” Saturday evening.
Harrison famously received her marriage proposal from three-time Olympic medalist Will Claye when he bounded into the stands after winning triple jump silver in Rio.
Here’s a clip from the Saturday, May 13, episode:

Will Claye’s engaging Rio interview after winning Queen Harrison’s hand in marriage and Olympic triple jump silver on the same day:
Memorably, when Harrison turned down the first dress she tried on she said, “It’s not wedding enough!”
Nor was it Queen enough.
It’s terrific to see a US track and field athlete gain such widespread social media exposure, especially in a setting beyond the track.
