Minneapolis/St. Paul – March 3, 2014 – Team USA Minnesota’s Heather Kampf was notified today that she has been named to the U.S. team for the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Sopot, Poland, March 7-9. Kampf was the alternate in the 1500 meters and will join the team due to the withdrawal of U.S. Women’s 1500m Champion Mary Cain because of injury.
Kampf, who placed third in the 1500m at the USA Indoor Track & Field Championships in Albuquerque on Feb. 23, leaves on a plane this evening for Poland. She had just finished her run this morning on a treadmill at the Life Time Fitness Highland Park Club when she got the call.
