USA Track and Field Championship Results
Results 6/29/09 - This past weekend in Eugene Oregon the USA championships determined the USA champions and the World Championships team. Almost every top USA athlete was there competing for a spot on the team. One exception is that any defending World Champion had a bye and was not required to run. In some cases, like Jeremy Wariner, they took this option. IN other cases, like Alison Felix, they decided to show up and defend their title. Alison did so brilliantly.
One of our other favorites that won was Jenny Barringer. For anyone who is not familiar with her, she graduated from Oviedo High School, east of Orlando just 4 years ago! She was a brilliant high school runner and has continued to improve. Some of her most recent accomplishments include an American Record in the Steeplechase in 9:22, a NCAA record in the 1500 in 3:59 at the Prefontaine Classic (and only 3rd American woman to run under 4 minutes), and a run-away victory by 50 meters in the steeplechase at the USATF championships.
