Jonathan Cabral will join his former Oregon teammate and current training partner Devon Allen in London in August.
The ex-Duck was the 110-meter hurdle champion at the Canadian Track & Field Championships, which concluded Sunday at Terry Fox Stadium in Ottawa.
Cabral, 24, who continues to live and train in Eugene, was an Olympic finalist in Rio de Janeiro last summer, finishing sixth. He also made the semifinals of the IAAF World Outdoor Championships in Beijing in 2015, his first season as a professional.
Allen was third at the U.S. championships in June in Sacramento to secure his spot in the world championship meet coming up next month.
Cabral won his Canadian title with a 13.61-second run.
Former Duck Jillian Weir also qualified for London with her second-place finish in the women’s hammer with a mark of 216 feet, 3 inches.
Sheila Reid, a member of the Eugene-based Oregon Track Club Elite, was second in the women’s 1,500 at 4:12.91 to earn an automatic spot in the world championships, capping a strong return to the track. She was injured last year and unable to contend for an Olympic berth.
Mohammed Ahmed and Matt Hughes of Portland-based Bowerman Track Club, also earned spots on the Canadian world championships team. Ahmed, a two-time Olympian and fourth-place finisher in Rio, won the men’s 5,000 in 14:02.36. Hughes, who was 10th in the 2016 Summer Games, won the men’s steeplechase in 8:30.91.
Hughes set the Canadian steeplechase record (8:11.61) at the 2013 world outdoor championships in Moscow.
