NEW HAVEN (USA): USATF informs that a half dozen Olympians, led by defending women's champion Molly Huddle, headline the fieldsMonday morning at the USATF 20 km Championships, hosted by the Faxon Law New Haven Road Race in New Haven, Connecticut. For Dathan Ritzenhein, Monday's race is another opportunity to gage his fitness as he works his way back to top racing form. The three-time Olympian seeks a major race victory and coming off his third place finish last month at the Crim 10 Miler, Ritzenhein should be in contention for the win in the final stages of the race. Similarly for Tegenkamp and Abdirahman, the focus for both athletes is to test their fitness having raced little in 2015, all the while contending for the win. Both athletes have winning experience on the course, Tegenkamp having won in both 2012 and 2013, while Abdirahman winning in 2011. Not to be overlooked, Sam Chelanga competes for his first U.S. title this weekend after gaining American citizenship earlier this year.
