NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Former Fighting Irish All-American Selim Nurudeen ('05) will be participating in the upcoming 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Nurudeen will be competing in the 110-meter high hurdles for Nigeria. Nurudeen, who is making his Olympic debut, is the lone entrant in that event for Nigeria. The Olympics will take place Aug. 8-24.

During his distinguished Notre Dame career, Nurudeen was a seven-time BIG EAST champion. That ranks as the second-most conference titles in program history for individual and relay events. He was a four-time champ (2002-05) in the 110-meter high hurdles along with capturing the 60-meter hurdles crown in 2004 and 2005. Nurudeen also won the 200-meters title in '05. In all, he received 15 all-BIG EAST honors, which is the most combined indoor and outdoor citations for a Notre Dame track and field student-athlete.

In 2005, he garnered two All-America honors by placing sixth in the 60-meter hurdles at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships and seventh in the 110-meter high hurdles at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships. That same season he served as team captain for the Irish and was named team MVP for the second straight season.

The heats for the 110-meter high hurdles will take place on Monday, Aug. 18 with the quarterfinals to occur on Aug. 19. The semifinals and finals are slated for Aug. 20 and 21, respectively, at the Beijing National Stadium.
