Alabama has added another NCAA national champion to its successful 2020-2021 academic year. 

Robert Dunning won the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 13.25 on Friday at the 2021 NCAA outdoor track and field championships in Eugene, Oregon. 

Watch the race here: 

He's Alabama's first national champion from the men's track and field team in any event since 2014. Dunning is also the first to win the 110-meter hurdles since Ron Bramlett in 2001 and 2002. 

Dunning's time is the eighth-fastest all-time in the event in the history of the meet. He finished the season undefeated. 

Dunning was also crowned the SEC champion in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 13.15. He also broke the Alabama record when he finished with a time of 13.28 earlier this spring. 

Dunning previously received recognition as an All-American in the outdoor 110-meter hurdles and 400-meter hurdles in 2019.
