Robin Reynolds named USATF Athlete of the Week, by USATF

After the video you just saw, my guess is that you think Robin Reynolds could do just about anything. Well, in Singapore, she ran 52.57 for 400 meters and anchored the sprint relay! No wonder USATF named her their athlete of the week!

Reynolds named USATF


Athlete of the Week


INDIANAPOLIS - Robin Reynolds has been named USA Track & Field's Athlete of the Week after winning gold medals in the 400m and mixed medley relay last week at the Youth Olympic Games at Singapore's Bishan Stadium.

On Saturday, Reynolds ran a 52.57 in the 400 meters, earning her the gold medal by more than half of a second. She was back in action Monday night, anchoring a medley relay (100, 200, 300, 400m) team that included Myasia Jacobs (Paterson, N.J.), Tynia Gaither (BAH) and Rashan Brown (BAH). Jacobs - who won the silver medal in the 100 meters on Saturday - started things out for the Americas team and handed the baton to Gaither, who in turn passed it to Brown. By the time Reynolds received the baton, the Americas had a slight lead, which she held on to, finishing in 2:05.62. In second place was the Africas team in 2:06.91, followed by Europe in 2:07.59.

Now in its ninth 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.
