Kastor named Athlete of the Week


INDIANAPOLIS - Deena Kastor has been named USA Track & Field's Athlete of the Week after winning the 2007 USA Women's 10 km Championship Monday, October 8 at the Tufts Health Plan 10K for Women in Boston.

The 2004 Olympic marathon bronze medalist, Kastor cruised to victory in the 10 km, crossing the finish line in 32 minutes 01 second. Kastor reached the finish 40 seconds ahead of two-time defending women's 10 km champion Katie McGregor, who was the runner-up in 32:41.

Another notable performance was turned in by National Track & Field Hall of Famer Jay Silvester, who set a M70 American masters record last Wednesday at the Huntsman World Senior Games in Saint George, Utah. The 1972 Olympic silver medalist and former world record holder in the discus, Silvester's winning throw of 50.27 meters/164 feet 11 inches smashed the previous record of 48.06m/157-8 set by Wendell Palmer in 2002.

Now in its sixth year, USATF's Athlete of the Week program is designed to recognize outstanding performers at all levels of the sport. USATF names a new honoree each week and features the athlete on the USATF website. Selections are based on top performances and results from the previous week
