USATF Outdoor Track & Field Championships Recap

Lesko

Birds on Fire!

USA’s!!! You never disappoint. Every year is different. The theme for Sacramento this year? Blazes hot! Hot stifling air when we landed on Wednesday, and hot on the track. We were so honored to have 13 of our elites competing, plus one super badass masters 400m runner! 


Six of our 7 amazing steeplers (Mel, Marisa, Megan, Alexina, Emily, Jamie, and Collier) made it to the final… so thrilling hearing one after another announced as they entered the track. Steepling is hard, dangerous, beautiful, and requires the athletes to call on reserves of strength…perfect metaphor for us as a business, and for life.

Steph Bruce battled the brutal conditions, stayed engaged, and finished 8th in a super strong 10k field.

Maria will be representing the USA at Worlds in London, after taking the 20k racewalk victory. Sweet reward after a challenging spring for her.

Brit made the hammer fly to her season’s best of 68.37m, putting all of her hard work on display.

Our 800m ladies Dom and Alisha, and Megan in the pole vault showed guts. Conditions are never perfect, but there is victory in showing up and doing what you can.

And Erika Pierce showed that age does not dictate fierceness.
