INDIANAPOLIS - Molly Huddle, of Elmira, NY, has been named USATF Athlete of the Week after her win at the USA 5 km Championships, hosted by the CVS Caremark Downtown 5k in Providence, R.I.
Capturing her second consecutive win at this event, Huddle’s (Providence, R.I.) burst of speed in the final 100 meters separated her from the field and the hometown favorite crossed the finish line victoriously in 15:29.6.
“It is a special win for me because of (the race) being in Providence,” Huddle said after the race. “Now that I have some points, I hope I can do the 12k that’s coming up. That’s an exciting twist to the US Road Racing Circuit that we have this year (.US Road Racing Championships), so I definitely want to show up for that and do a little longer race, so I’ll train through the season.”
Molly Huddle is the second Niagara Association member to be named USATF Athlete of the Week in 2013, Jenn Suhr won in March for her World Record Indoor Pole Vault record of 5.02m.
