O’Connor repeats as Athlete of the Week for nationals
Call her “Back-to-Back” O’Connor. That’s an apt nickname for Nadine O’Connor of Del Mar, California, who today was named USATF Athlete of the Week for her amazing string of records at the Boston indoor nationals. Seven months ago, she was accorded the same honor after winning four events at the Charlotte outdoor nationals. She also won back-to-back USATF Masters Athlete of the Year awards. She might be scarce for the next few weeks, however, as she rehabs a sore foot that made competition painful in Boston. She’ll be back. Way to go, Nadine!
