Doritos puts Buckeye Olympian Christina Clemons on bag after wearing Cool Ranch earrings in Olympic Trials

News

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Former Ohio State Buckeye Christina Clemons qualified for the Olympics for the first time after finishing third in the 100-meter hurdles on Monday, but it was the earrings Clemons wore that stole the show.

Clemons ran the race while wearing Cool Ranch Doritos earrings in what’s become a viral moment for the 31-year-old who won two national championships at Ohio State.

After the win, Doritos reached out to Clemons and put her picture on a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos with a caption that reads “For those who keep it cool even when running for their dreams.”

As a Buckeye, Clemons was an 11-time All-American, a 10-time Big Ten champion, including eight individual championships, and she won two NCAA titles as a senior in 2012 in the 60-meter hurdles indoors and the 100-meter hurdles outdoors.
