Athletics - 02. June 2009.

Felix out classes the rest of the field at The 2009 Reebok Grand Prix at Icahn Stadium.


The former American record holder in the 3,000m steeplechase, Anna Willard won the women's 800m in a world-leading 1:59.29. Running a conservative race for the first 700m, Willard kicked into high gear over the last 100 to overtake three-time Olympian Hazel Clark and 2008 Olympic finalist Kenia Sinclair of Jamaica.
 
After making the Olympic Games final in the steeplechase and finishing ninth, Willard decided she needed a change and made the move to the Mammoth Track Club and Coach Terrence Mahon. Since the switch, Willard won the USA Indoor 1,500m title 4:17.37 and the BAA road mile in 4:38.6.
 
Double Olympic silver medalist and two-time World Outdoor champion over 200m, Allyson Felix ran down Olympic silver medalist Shericka Williams (JAM) in the Nutrilite women's 400m to win in a world-leading 50.50 to Williams' 50.58. 2007 World Outdoor bronze medalist Novlene Williams-Mills took third in 51.11.
 
Beijing silver medalist Jenn Stuczynski continued her domination of the women's pole vault on American soil, winning the event with a world-leading 4.81 meters/15 feet 9.25 inches. 2000 Olympic gold medalist Stacy Dragila was second with a clearance of 4.52m/14-10.
 
Two-time World Outdoor 100m medalist Lauryn Williams posted a world leader in winning the women's 200m, crossing the line in 22.34. 2006 NCAA Indoor and Outdoor champion Shalonda Solomon was the runner-up in 22.43.
  
2008 Olympian Christin Wurth-Thomas won the Reebok women's 1,500m in a meet record, personal best 4:03.96.
