Sophomore sprinter Trayvon Bromell was named Big 12 Male Outdoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week for the third time in his career on Wednesday.

Bromell previously won the award March 26, 2014, and April 2, 2014, and is now the only player in program history to have won the award three times.

Bromell’s victory in the 100-meter dash at the Nike Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays marked him as the fourth runner to repeat as champion in the 40-year history of the event. Bromell posted a time .12 seconds faster than any other runner in the NCAA in 2015.

Bromell will compete in the 200-meter and 4×100-meter in the inaugural Baylor Invitational to be held Friday at the brand-new Clyde Hart Track and Field Stadium.
