Junior All-American hurdler Rai Benjamin is in his first season as a track athlete at USC after transferring from UCLA. Last season, Benjamin took second in the NCAA 400m hurdles final running a PR of 48.33, which was just .01 second behind the winner. Benjamin's time matches USC's school record, set by Olympic gold medalist Felix Sanchez in 2000. He also won the 2017 Pac-12 400m hurdles title. Being that it is Rivalry Week, it seemed fitting that we caught up with Benjamin now.
