Kathryn Martin named USATF Athlete of the Week for Syracuse 5K
Kathryn Martin is so consistently dominant in her age group that we (meaning I) take her honors for granted. Thank goodness, the folks at Indy recognize her every once in a while. Her latest eye-opener is described here: “Martin has been named USA Track & Fieldâ€™s Athlete of the Week after setting an age-group American record at the USA Masters 5 km Championships in Syracuse, N.Y. on Sunday. Martin (Northpoint, N.Y.) won the womenâ€™s 60-64 division in 19:04 to better the previously listed record by eight seconds. Martin handily won her age group with more than a minute to spare over second place. In the age-graded results, Martin scored 100.35 percent, the best of any competitor male or female.” Nice going, superstar! Keep showing the kiddies how to run!
