Over the past 4 decades, the best of the best cross country runners from America's high schools have competed in this amazing event. The nationals began in San Diego, then, Orlando, and thankfully, returned to San Diego. The iconic nature of Balboa Park, in San Diego gives the East Bay nationals a historic home for the top American high school cross country runners.

CJ Albertson had an amazing day in Boston on October 11, 2021. His leading the Boston marathon for 1:40 gave the athlete and his sponsor Brooks almost two hours on the well watched global feed and the US Boston broadcast.

Matt Wisner wrote this column, on CJ Albertson and how he almost won Boston. It was great to see the Clovis community college coach, CJ Albertson, take the lead, and lead for 20 plus miles!

Doesn't everyone want to lead the Boston marathon?

Sifan Hassan and Karsten Warholm were named 2021 EA Athletes of the year. Hassan won gold in 10,000m, 5,000m and took the bronze in the 1,500m! She was amazing. I actually think the 1,500m first round, where she fell got up and ran 43.9 in 300m to catch up. Her wins at the 10,000m and 5,000m showed a superior racing style and need to excel. Her bronze at the 1,500m, against two athletes who were faster than her, showed someone who does not give up. Sifan Hassan earned this one!

Karston Warholm set two world records at the 400m hurdles in 2021. His solo WR, and then, at Tokyo Olympics, his battle with Rai Benjamin, was one of the best tv sports moments of the summer. His races this summer, his ability to dig deeper than anyone in his event. His enthusiasm, his star power, and his talent show each time he battles the globe over 400 meters with ten hurdles, which seem to get taller as one gets farther in the race!

What is below is the amazing release from EA on the award winners from this weekend!
