• World Champions Ashton Eaton and Allyson Felix named USATF Athletes of the Year

    INDIANAPOLIS -- World Champions Ashton Eaton and Allyson Felix have been named the 2015 Jesse Owens and Jackie Joyner-Kersee Athletes of the Year, USATF announced Thursday.

    Eaton (Bend, Oregon) and Felix (Los Angeles, California) will be honored on Saturday, December 5, at the Jesse Owens Awards in Houston, Texas. The event is held in conjunction with USATF’s Annual Meeting. Tickets for the event are available at the Hyatt Regency Houston beginning on Wednesday, December 2 until the ceremony is sold out.

    “First thing I thought of was the actual Jesse Owens Award and how much better care I’m going to take with this one,” Eaton laughed. “In 2012, 30 seconds after I got the award, I dropped it on the ground and broke it in half. I had to get USATF to make a new one.

  • Huddle Dominates, Chelanga Wins Narrowly at .US National 12K

    ALEXANDRIA, Virginia – For the third year in a row, Olympian Molly Huddle took home top prize at the .US National 12K Sunday morning in Alexandria, Virginia, running away from the field early, while men’s champion Sam Chelanga used a late kick to the finish to edge Tyler Pennel for the title.

    As expected, Huddle set a very fast pace from the gun, passing through the first mile in 5:10, already three seconds ahead of the competition. The Providence-based standout continued to press in miles two and three, building a lead of over 100 meters before the turnaround point.

    Despite the large lead, Huddle charged on, running calm and in control as each mile clicked along. With the finish line in sight and a lead of nearly 30 seconds over the rest of the field, Huddle coasted home for her third straight .US National 12K title in 38:26.

    Fort Lauderdale fitness instructor Daniella Draughon, 37, won the women's division in 1:30:58 - FORT LAUDERDALE -- Bryan Sharkey, the manager of retail operations for Carnival Cruise Lines, has been cruising a lot lately, but he finds himself on cruise control these days when enjoying his passion of running.

    Sharkey blew away the competition Sunday in the eighth edition Michelob ULTRA Fort Lauderdale 13.1 Marathon. Sharkey's only opponent seemed to be the 20-plus mile-an-hour gusting winds that runners encountered throughout the race.

    "Wind was definitely a factor," said Sharkey, who finished in third place the last time he ran in the event in 2013. "But weather is weather. You have to look past it."
