FAMUan representing Dominican Republic in 2012 Olympics

Lavonne Idlette, a student at the FAMU College of Law, is proud of her university’s Orange and Green colors. But this summer, she’s seeking gold in London.

Idlette will represent the Dominican Republic in the 100-meter hurdle race in the 2012 Olympic Games. She holds her country’s national record in the event (12.96).

FAMU School of Journalism and Graphic Communication alumna Tiffany Greene interviewed Idlette for the Bright House Sports Network. Idlette, who was a scholarship track athlete at Hampton University, loved FAMU law’s location.

“I found a new coach that was in Orlando. And then I found out that the FAMU law school was in Orlando. So I’m like: ‘Oh. It’s a perfect match,’” Idlette said.

Idlette’s race is scheduled for August 6. View Greene’s full interview with Idlette here.
